A code of ethics serves as a compass, guiding professionals as they perform the roles associated with their profession. These codes are evidence to the public that professionals are concerned about the services they provide and the individuals to whom they are provided. Codes of ethics should be living documents, changing focus as the fields they represent change. The purpose of this article is to provide a review of the current and historical changes to the Council for Learning Disabilities' "Principles of Ethical Practice" and encourage discussion and reflection on employing these standards. In support of the latter, five case studies are presented to afford opportunities for practitioners to engage in professional discussions aimed at improving the services and practices provided to students with learning disabilities in general education settings.
