What are the Code of Ethics?
The Code of Ethics is a guide developed by the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP) to help Direct Support Professionals in resolving daily ethical dilemmas while meeting the highest standards of the direct support profession. The Code of Ethics presents ethical statements that represent the beliefs, attitudes, and expectations that should be incorporated into daily practice in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Code of Ethics was created in 2000, and then updated in 2016.
More information can be found on the Code of Ethics page. Information on how to implement the Code of Ethics can be found in the Resource Library.
