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.

As poor employment rates of individuals with intellectual disability (ID) are examined, the need to increase self-determination skills continues to be evident in relation to employability and job retention. The purpose of this presentation is to review a tech in action manuscript written to provide teachers or practitioners with a strategy they can use to help increase and promote time management skills in students or young adults with ID. Using wearable technology (i.e., Fitbit smart watch) and a smartphone, the tech in action manuscript examines a strategy where four steps are used to implement a task analysis to teach students with ID to set alarms based on his or her daily schedule. The steps include: (a) establishing routines, (b) identifying technology and pairing devices, (c) instruction, and (d) monitoring progress. A current post-secondary education student with autism will demonstrate the strategy.
