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.

Post-secondary education opportunities for students with disabilities have become much more available than they used to be and there are now a large number of such initiatives throughout the country. These initiatives differ in their structure and approaches. This session will focus on key components of an inclusive mindset and outline some useful concepts for creating a high quality inclusive post secondary education such as (a) utilization of culturally valued analogues, (b) the necessity of having a deep understanding of the social role of a post secondary student and (c) finding ways to compensate for vulnerabilities to stigma and low expectations; We will look at quality from different perspectives e.g., students, faculty, and family members. As well, barriers and obstacles to quality will be identified and we will engage participants in brainstorming ways to deal with these barriers. This presentation will highlight lessons learned from the Integrated Studies program at Millersville University and the work of the Pennsylvania Inclusive Higher Education Consortium.
