This session will consider the ethical concerns and dilemmas faced by job developers in their daily work. Guidance for handling these situations will be provided within the context of existing, relevant codes of ethics from the Commission on Rehabilitation Counseling Certification (CRCC) Code of Professional Ethics for Rehabilitation Counselors and the American Counseling Association (ACA) Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice; we will examine how the APSE Ethical Guidelines mesh with these Codes. Further, we will review the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements related to disability disclosure, a potential dilemma, at all stages of the job search process. Through case scenarios, participants will have a chance to put this information into practice, enhancing the likelihood that they will effectively apply this knowledge to future ethical challenges.

Conference
TASH Conference

The TASH Conference is the advocacy, networking and educational event of the year and brings together stakeholders from all aspects of the community. For 37 years, this conference has attracted leading experts and advocates on issues impacting the disability community. This year's theme "So Many Answers Left Unquestioned" challenges us to confront the way systems work, the way programs are funded, the long-held beliefs shared by professionals, who gets to decide what, and other elements in the support web for people with disabilities, and hold them up to the scrutiny she suggests. If what is provided is not helpful, not valuable to the person, and not leading to what he/she wants in life, what is the point? This theme challenges us to think deliberately about answers that should be questioned, and questions that should be continually asked.
