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.

Why go to college? The holistic answer is to grow as a person, the practical answer is to grow career prospects, and of course both are true. People with intellectual disabilities are no different, and with the explosive growth in the number of inclusive post-secondary education programs, more and more people with cognitive disabilities are choosing IPSE as their route to a career. In this presentation, three long-time members of the inclusive postsecondary community in Georgia, including a recent IPSE graduate, will share the ongoing evolution of IPSE in their state and stories of its impact on a veritable rainbow of individuals. We'll discuss how to find a successful fit between a person and an inclusive postsecondary experience and share practical advice on how to bake quality career development into the core of a program, how to support successful student transition from school to career, and the critical role of providers, state agencies and families. Attendees will be critical participants in this session, engaging in activities like the Unpredictable Path Game, a team exercise inspired by the real-life experiences of members of the inclusive postsecondary community that will illustrate some of the twists, turns, opportunities and outcomes an inclusive postsecondary education can bring.
