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.

Limited Capacity seats available

As we all know, the demographic in the United States has been changing rapidly with an increasing number of families whose first language is not English. Navigating systems of care for these families is so daunting that many of these families do not know where to turn. This workshop is a panel from different professionals who live the lives who will share their unique perspectives on how to effectively work with families from culturally diverse backgrounds, to help bridge gaps in communication, cultural belief, disability attitude, social stigma, and increase the participation of parents from diverse backgrounds.
