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.

The On-Campus Transition Partnership (OCTP) is a collaborative program between a local school division and Radford University. Post-high school students (who continue to qualify for IEP services) with complex support needs participate in a variety of classes, jobs, and experiences on campus based on their interests and goals. Some choose to explore their own disability through an Introduction to Autism Spectrum Disorder class. Students in OCTP as well as university students who identify with ASD have participated in the class with different learning goals, but all come out with a greater understanding of their ASD. This session will share these individual students'€™ experiences within this class as well as strategies for adapting the curriculum to accommodate student needs and identified learning goals. Everyone in the class benefits by learning from students with ASD about their personal experiences, technology they use, and supports they find effective. The reciprocal benefits to all students will be shared.
