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.

My world is filled with many things that are out of my control and by any reasonable standard could be considered devastating. However, both subjectively and objectively, I have a lot to be happy about. This includes communication, advocacy and reciprocal relationships. Using a keyboard or letterboard, I am now able to communicate all day long and this has been life changing. Since presenting at TASH last year, I have been invited to talk with scientists and educators about rethinking autism. I hope this helps to reshape the thinking of those in influential positions. I also got a chance to publicly tell my sister how much she means to me and that my autism is not her lifelong responsibility.
