ADA and Legal Considerations

Resources

In this discussion you will demonstrate your understanding of the American Disabilities Act and Section 504. Address the following in your post:

  • Describe how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504, and the law influence working with students who have a disability.
  • Share a case that you have worked on in the past or invent one that will apply to this discussion. You can change the information as you need to in order to address the topics in the discussion. For example, you may change the age or ethnicity of the client. Remember to maintain the confidentiality of the client.

Assignment 2

Codes of Ethics

Using the Taneka case scenario from your Unit 2 assignment, apply two Codes of Ethics from our professional bodies (using the most current codes). One needs to come from NCDA and the other can be of your choice from the suggested list in this unit’s studies. Embellish the case as you need to in order to apply two ethical codes to the case. For example, you can say that the counselor is starting to have romantic feelings towards the client. State which code would apply (ACA, A.5.b), and how you would handle the situation. Make sure you use both codes (NCDA and, for example, ACA).
