In this paper, we first make a case for why ethics, and specifically ethical education practices, are important to the study of sport disability.  Second, we argue for perspective taking and challenge the reader to reexamine federal and state laws directed toward disability policy.  Third, we ask the reader to address the question: does law build a caring environment?   The paper is rooted in three educational concepts:  ethics, perspectives, and care for people with physical disabilities.  Examples are offered of inclusionary practices in physical education and recreation.  Current research in disability sports studies focusing on ethics and ethical practice is highlighted.  The conclusion focuses on the importance of ethical communities.
