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.

The turnover rate for special education teachers exceeds that of other content areas. Therefore, in this presentation we will uncover the reasons special education teachers are failing to stay in the field and how this directly impacts a students learning and access in education. We will discuss our 2016-2017 survey study completed by over 400 special education teachers from 23 states. We will present our quantitative and qualitative findings as well as implication for future research, policies, and pre-service education programs. Audience members will leave with a better understanding of the teacher failure cycle in special education and ways to implement systemic changes. The session will include a PowerPoint presentation and an accompanying handout. The presentation will also facilitate an open discussion from audience members.
