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.

Pathways to Careers is a customized employment initiative that has been piloted in partnership with four nonprofit service provider agencies. Mathematica Policy Research has been collecting and evaluating data from the pilot sites, including looking at individual outcomes, impact, costs savings and replicability to understand the broader implications and sustainability of this customized employment approach. Findings from the evaluation indicate that the investment of resources and time needed to establish the infrastructure and provide more comprehensive services is resulting in significant societal benefits including quality employment outcomes for participants, cost savings at the Federal and state levels and increased community engagement. Join us for a more quantitative look at Employment First in practice.
