In my case the Disability services will be a very important resource, because I usually need a little more time to meet up with assignment requirements due to a physical disability, which other resource is important to you? REPLY QUOTE Hide 2 replies 29 days ago Monique Holsey WALDEN INSTRUCTOR MANAGER RE: Discussion - Week 1 COLLAPSE Andason, Great point regarding disability services as a support for students. The revised Code of Ethics; “Disability” to “Ability” In the 2008 edition of the Code, several standards included the term “disability” among a list of diversity factors such as race, ethnicity, and national origin. All the other diversity factors used positive, strengths-based language. In the new Code, the term “disability” is replaced with “ability,” a more inclusive and strength-based term. Rather than focusing upon deficits or problems, the
term ability invites social workers to think about the different abilities of people. Thus, under standard 1.05(c), social workers should “obtain education and seek to understand the nature of social diversity and oppression” with respect to people with varying abilities (among other diversity factors). The term “ability” is also incorporated into Standards 1.05(d), 1.06(g), 2.01, 4.02, and 6.04 for similar reasons. v=- code-of-ethics-whats-new/ REPLY QUOTE EMAIL AUTHOR Hide 1 reply 28 days ago Andason Romanous Tashi RE: Discussion - Week 1 COLLAPSE That is a great way of viewing the term disability, as an ability. Will endeavour to read the revised Code of Ethics to better understand the term "ability" in terms of social diversity and oppression. what about the physical "ability"? from what perspective is that viewed?

I think that from the University resources that i would be using the most, would have to be the Writing Center and also the Walden Library. Now I say the Writing Center, because even though this isn't my first time attending on line classes, it never hurt to brush up and freshen up your writing skills. Helping improve he skills that you already are educated on. I have always been confident in being able to format and write my papers correctly, but I know that i could use some improve in certain areas, just to make sure that I can get the best grade possible. Not only when it comes to writing papers for school but also with my job as well. I am an Admin personnel for the Homeless Team and writing memorandums, or policies and procedure's always requires the proper wording and structure. Now when it comes to the Walden Library, this is one resources that will always be helpful. The amount of different articles, books and dissertations that are available to all Walden Students is amazing. And the fact that in todays day and age everything is either on the Internet makes it much easier to look up the information much faster than going into the library and checking out the book itself. Now I'm not saying that there is nothing wrong with going into the library,
