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.

Inclusion Outreach (IO) is a multidisciplinary British Columbia Ministry of Education Provincial Outreach Program that supports 120 students with complex support needs to be included in schools throughout the province. IO and Open School BC partnered to develop an e-mentoring project that provides service continuity for these students in an innovative way. Using a Learning Management System (LMS) we have created secure, password protected student-specific websites as information repositories . In addition, using videos, discussion boards, and web conferencing, staff can now connect on a regular basis with parents and the school-based teams that support each student. This presentation aligns with the 2017 theme "Still we Rise for Equity, Opportunity and Inclusion" by describing an approach to build local capacity to support inclusive education that enhances current and future quality of life for students with complex support needs.
