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.

In 2017, the conference theme "Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion" is embedded in our work in local schools researching how educators worked together to deliver high quality reading instruction to ALL students. Our research team spent a year with teachers and students in 10 schools and five school districts in Kansas and California to deliver a well-researched emergent literacy program in general education classrooms. We had a front-row seat watching how teachers and students navigated learning academic content. Our study examined how the ELSB program affected and facilitated the development of teacher-students, teacher-teacher, and student-student relationships in small group settings in general education classrooms. We were able to observe how general and special education teachers negotiated their roles, the use of space in the classroom, handled discipline issues, and learned to talk together about their work. As well, we observed how children's relationships changed over time as they got to know each other through participation in specific learning routines. The results affirm the benefits to students and educators when the boundaries between general and special education merge into one.
