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.

Accumulated evidence in AAC research now strongly supports the importance of AAC modeling to increase students' language use and competence using either high- or low-teach AAC tools (Sennott, Light, & McNaughton 2016). Inclusive educational settings are the ideal context in which to implement modeling within both academic and social contexts. In this session, examples of systems used for implementing strong AAC modeling among paraprofessionals, teachers, and peers will be shared, along with ideas for getting started in your own classrooms. Emphasis will also be placed on increasing opportunities for AAC use throughout the school day.
