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.

This study is a preliminary study on bilingualism in Korean-American children with autism and other developmental disabilities by conducting a content analysis on 26 threads and 141 replies posted by Korean-American parents in an online support community. Contrary to the literature on bilingualism in autism, Korean-American parents were found to share inaccurate information with the community. To enhance communication with parents with limited English skills, professionals and practitioners may need to invest additional resources such as user-friendly online information sources and to promote online interactions with parents of children with autism and other developmental disabilities.
