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.

With more schools implementing schoolwide positive behavior support (SWPBS) and achieving valued student outcomes associated with these efforts, the inclusion of students with extensive support needs must be considered. These students remain programmatically and physically separated from general education instruction and activities, suggesting their limited involvement in SWPBS. In this study, a survey of school-based SWPBS coaches was completed to assess the involvement of students with extensive support needs in a single state. Results suggest that students with ESN are involved in the incentive-based components of their school's SWPBS plan; however, there were differences among respondents in the reported existence of behavior plans and crisis intervention plans. Implications and recommendations for these findings are provided.
