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.

Supported decision-making represents a fundamental shift in thinking about the best ways to support the independence, autonomy, dignity and self-determination of people with disabilities.  Learn about the successes and challenges of implementing supported decision-making as an alternative to Guardianship across disabilities.  Hear from family members, practitioners and advocates about a statewide collaboration, results of a national summit and a national parents survey.  Participants will recieve a copy of a soon to be published TASH newsletter on supported decision-making.
