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.

On June 14, 2017, TASH presented Thomas J. Gilhool with its first annual Outstanding Leadership in Disability Law Award at a symposium and dinner that focused on the right to education.  Thomas J. Gilhool was selected as the first recipient of this award for his successful legal advocacy in PARC v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the lawsuit that set the stage for the passage of P.L..94-142 (now IDEA).  At the symposium, he and three colleagues discussed the implications of the Endrew F. decision on the future of special education.  This session recreates that panel presentation and offers insights into the future of the right to education in the 21st century.
