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.

People with disabilities living in the community who receive home and community based services are often not involved in making their own health care decisions. Moreover, people with disabilities who are transitioning from state hospitals or nursing facilities into the community are not supported on how they can make their own health care decisions while in the community as part of the discharge planning process. This presentation will focus on how persons with disabilities can create a circle of support to ensure equity, opportunity, and inclusion so that they can make their own informed decisions about their health care needs (including, but not limited to, selecting a health care provider, making appointments to be treated by the medical provider, and attending the medical appointment).
