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.

In this session, representatives of two Connecticut organizations will describe how they have creatively secured employment for a wide range of individuals with significant disabilities. Employment options range from "the right kind of social enterprise" to self-employment/entrepreneurial ventures to customized employment with or without supports. Earning real money at wages that are equitable to those who have similar roles in business and industry, working in inclusive settings, and having employment opportunities unique to each individuals' personal strengths, interests, and preferences underlie each story told.
