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.

The mission of International Baccalaureate programs within schools strives to develop student understanding of global citizenship traits. The Learner Profile aligned to these programs embraces community engagement through appreciation of culture, diversity, and respect for the self and others. With the notions of equity and inclusion underlying the very core of International-Baccalaureate design, it is unfortunate that students with disabilities are often the very ones isolated from participation within these programs. By leveraging evidence-based supports within shared academic settings, opportunities for inclusive service learning, and explicit character-strength instruction, stakeholders can ensure that students with disabilities take on meaningful roles within these internationally-focused programs, becoming valuable global citizens beside their peers and friends.
