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 basis for this session is to share the impact of inclusive programs that serve students with intellectual disabilities (ID) on people who do not have disabilities and support each other in their college experiences (Caseboltt & Hodge, 2010; Isso & Shuman, 2013; Rao, 2004). The purpose of this qualitative research was to explore the impact of direct service learning experiences completed during an introductory special education course on a college campus in the southeastern United States. More specifically, researchers examined written reflections of college students who interacted and directly supported individuals with intellectual disability living and participating in various activities within their college community. NVivo was used to analyze and determine attitude changes and interactions towards individuals with ID. The presentation relates specifically to the 2017 TASH conference theme as it highlights truly inclusive community practices while celebrating human rights in a college community that embraces inclusion.
