NADSP Code of Ethics for Direct Support Professionals (2001)
A set of materials presenting the Code of Ethics for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) that has been developed by the Research and Training Center on Community Living (RTC) at the Institute on Community Integration, in collaboration with the National Alliance for Direct Support Professionals (NADSP) and a panel of DSPs, advocates, families, other professionals and researchers. It serves as a guide for DSPs as they deal with the ethical decisions they face on the job, and encourages them to achieve the highest ideals of their profession. The Code is presented in three formats: wallet cards, brochures, and posters. The brochure provides the entire Code, and the poster and wallet card have a quick-reference version. Published by NADSP and the Institute's Research and Training Center on Community Living.
