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.

This interactive skill-building session presents research-informed practices fundamental to successful integration and inclusion (membership, affiliation and equal opportunity) for students with autism and low incidence disabilities. Major barriers to the inclusion of these students within school settings and practical strategies for overcoming those barriers will be highlighted. Tactics that foster students' active engagement, positive performance, personal autonomy, and mutual participation WITH typical peers, within and across general education settings, will additionally be illustrated and discussed.
