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.

In rural areas across the country a lack of employment opportunity is a shared concern. This is not a disability specific issue but is a shared concern for all citizens. Rural areas, however, often offer unique opportunities to expand employment because of the greater sense of community, the inventiveness that comes from a lack of resources and the fact that for most small communities, the concerns of economic development, jobs, and post-school success are shared by all. This presentation will tell the stories of adult providers and transition staff over the course of this five-year Rural Routes to Employment Project: Barriers identified, Practices developed, Economic Development approaches utilized. All which can be easily adopted and become in many instances solutions to the increasing employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities.
