LNG 455 WEEK 1 DQ 2 Discussion 2 Ethics
The American Speech Language Hearing Association’s (ASHA) Code of Ethics outlines the principles to which a speech-language pathologist must adhere in their everyday conduct. After reading the Code of Ethics, discuss why it is important to be ethical and the role that professional codes of ethics serve. Imagine a situation in which a speech-language pathologist might face an ethical dilemma. Provide the particular ethical principle(s) and/or rule(s) that would be in question in your example. Feel free to use the recommended reading, Ethics: It’s more than common sense, as a source, but your dilemma must be original.
Support your points with examples from this week’s required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references.
