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.

Shifting from program offerings to individualized supports requires a realignment of relationships between government, providers, families, individuals with disabilities and various community entities. This session explores the contextual and practical aspects that encourage co-created supports as opposed to a delegated service arrangement. Personal and organizational examples of creative support arrangements including paid-neighbors and living near and next to staffing from people and agencies involved in seeking to change the pattern from programs offerings to co-created individualized supports will be shared.
