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.

Focusing on how to reframe the IEP as a tool for building authentic inclusive communities for students, this panel compiles the voices and perspectives from self-advocates, family members, educators, and researchers on how the IEP is more than mere compliance. And how, when developed strategically, it works to shift the focus away from procedural compliance to one of meaningful programming that builds inclusive lives for individuals.Based on a current issue of the TASH Connections magazine, “The Individualized Education Program as a living document”, this panel is comprised of the authors and editor. The panel will discuss what the IEP as a living document means and how to implement such a vision in your meeting or school. The information within this issue and panel may reignite the commitment to free appropriate public education by its encouragement of an inclusive community and authentic partnership and programming, using the IEP as a proactive tool, rather than seen as an object of mere compliance.
