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.

All students, including students with significant disabilities, can be afforded equity through learning and applying the same rigorous standards-aligned instruction and content! Connecting students eligible for alternate assessment to standards-aligned content has been the focus of our work for 6 years. This learning is critical to students for future success in employment, education and community, including relationships. It is important to provide all teachers with the tools and professional development support that will result in learning for students across environments. This session will provide participants with examples of standards-aligned content targets, materials, and sample probes which could be appropriate for students across the range of the population of those eligible for alternate assessment. In addition, a rubric will be shared which helps to define the characteristics of solid standards-aligned content that is appropriate for students at different grade levels and those who interact with material at varying levels of complexity. Finally, feedback from teachers who have tried out the examples will be shared to demonstrate ways in which the examples have been used in the classroom.
