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.

Interactive reading experiences provide a natural context for the development of a language proficiency, literary confidence, and genuine friendship. Embedding peer-implemented intervention strategies within the context of shared reading routines for students with complex communication needs enhances individual competencies, and enriches the perceptions of classroom communication partners. Teachers who facilitate reading PPAIRRS (Pair up; Preview; Actively read; Inspire; Reflect; Reinforce) strengthen capacity for peers to support communicative attempts of students with complex communication needs, increase the text-based conversational skills of students with complex communication needs and their peers, and foster opportunities for friendships to develop as a result of students celebrating and persevering through complex texts together.
