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.

Postsecondary education programs for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (PSEs) in colleges and universities expand opportunities (Grigal, Hart, & Weir, 2012) and result in positive outcomes, including increased employment and improved social networks of support (Thoma et al., 2011). Although participating in postsecondary education results in numerous benefits for students with disabilities (Moore & Schelling, 2015), higher education faculty and staff are often unsure how to conceptualize and develop programs and courses at their home institutions (Mock & Love, 2012) that are inclusive and benefit all students. This presentation will outline the steps taken to develop an inclusive college course focused on Transition, Issues & Planning, that enrolls students who are obtaining a Chancellor's certificate via the University PSE program and single/dual teacher certification at a Midwestern 4 year University. Challenges and successes will be shared, as well as student and faculty perspectives of the experience.
