2017 TASH Conference has ended

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

One of the most important aspects that allow individuals to live the lives they desire is employment. Employment not only gives individuals purpose, but employment also provides them the means to live independent lives. Through the Employment First State Leadership Mentoring Program (EFSLMP) and the Partnerships in Employment (PIE) programs, the federal government is supporting states as they work to change their policies in order to make competitive integrated employment (CIE) more accessible to more people with disabilities. Learn about the similarities and differences between EFSLMP and PIE, the technical assistance each provides, and the successful strategies states have used to change policy to increase CIE.
