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 filling up

Even after years of person-centered planning and thinking, we still miss the mark when we make plans without addressing social inequities and barriers. We may be accessing and playing on the same field but is it really equal or are there still barriers that have to be overcome with "specialized" services and supports. What questions and discussions are we having to level that playing field and ensure equal access to all, addressing the barriers and internalized oppression? During this session we will discuss and problem solve these issues and come up with actions we can all take back to obliterate barriers and truly support all people to live fully included and equal in their community of choice. We will share stories and struggles to begin the conversation.
