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.

In the 2011 TASH Conference, a panel featured this young man's journey while in pilot program during his 1st grade year that outlined a solid framework for inclusive education for students with significant disabilities. Now, Damian Jr. is in 8th grade and continues to excel in inclusive settings in the midst of the complexities, challenges, and barriers.
