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 educators and professionals, we have a responsibility to create innovative solutions for students to communicate their accomplishments in a professional and contemporary approach to provide access to competitive and integrated employment. In this breakout session, we will explore how to create a dynamic website allowing students to document their journey through high school, employment and beyond. We will discuss the components, organization, and process of building an website portfolio to include: online resume, blog, video, file storage, social media, photos, etc. Students can utilize this tool as a way to communicate their accomplishments, strengths, support needs, and experiences. A self advocate will co-facilitate this presentation and share his personal experience with using his website to reinstate his rights.
