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.

Money plays an important role in everybody's life. Everyone needs financial education and other opportunities to better understand how to manage money and save towards our individual goals. In this session, you will identify a goal that you have for yourself and explore how to earn, manage, and save money to meet your goal. You will also hear from a self-advocate on their success in building their money skills. During this session, we will complete the following activities:
1. Mini-Vision Board Activity a. Identify a goal that you have for yourself? b. What is the cost to reach your goal?
2. First Money Memory Activity
3. What are some of your needs related to money? a. What are strategies for meeting your money needs? b. How can you earn more money and save your money, even when you need to keep a public benefit?
This session is intended for self-advocates and their allies but is a fun, interactive session for anyone interested in building their money skills.
