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.

Parents and educators from the TASH Inclusive Education Committee will remind us of the true meaning of inclusive education; identify barriers to inclusive neighborhood public schools created by flawed assumptions about student with disabilities, early intervention practices that over-emphasize medically-based approaches, and lack of family engagement; and share success stories. Participants will develop an inclusive education/life vision for their child/student and learn strategies for enlisting diverse inclusive education allies in their own communities.
