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.

Many youth with severe disabilities do not possess the vocational and social skills necessary to secure and sustain employment. One intervention that may improve these skills and provide inclusive opportunities in the work place is peer supports. This study used a multiple baseline design across participants with generalization probes to examine the effects of peer supports on the engagement in independent work tasks and social interactions for students with severe disabilities and their peers in a high school work-based setting.
