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.

Given the discrepancies between the desires of people with IDD regarding employment and the reality, it is essential to bolster the work employment consultants do on a daily basis. The role of employment consultants requires research and attention to practice. The ThinkWork project, at the Institute for Community Inclusion, continues to explore the role and activities of employment consultants. Current projects have focused on both qualitative and quantitative input from employment consultants, which has informed the development of a comprehensive model of employment supports for job seekers with IDD.
