ASHA Course Code: Ethics and Ethical Decision Making – 7070
You never expected to find yourself in an ethical predicament in the field of speech-language pathology, did you? Whether it’s due to using published tools that don’t quite fit our students or not being completely sure about whether a bilingual student has a difference or a disorder, many of us have found ourselves in uncomfortable situations.
In this presentation we evaluate general ethical concerns and situations across several professions and then hone in on situations we encounter in the field of speech-language pathology in our work serving students from diverse backgrounds. We explore HOW and WHY we encounter ethical situations and WHAT we can do to eliminate such situations in the future.
