hears voices and talks back to them. This often happens and has resulted in her hitting her head with her own fist and extremely vulgar language being used when she talks back to the voices she is hearing. She is seeing a new counselor and in an effort to help the situation I would like to videotape her and show it to her counselor so she can see what our daughter is like when this happens. My question is, "will we be in violation of her personal privacy, or any other ADA guideline since she is her own guardian?" Obviously, we cannot tell her we will be recording her when this happens, but we want to ensure that we are giving the counselor all of the information that she needs to help our angel. Realistic concerns from loving parents.
It sounds to me as though she requires a guardian of her person and estate from the limited information in your post. So long as the information is safeguarded and her privacy protected between her and her doctors, I do not believe any law(s) are being violated.
