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.

This documentary was developed through a grant by the Edith L. Trees Foundation. It was developed by the program director and a self-advocate who interviewed adults about their experiences of living life on the autism spectrum. The self-advocates talk about perceptions and preconceived notions of those in the community and how we are all more alike than we are different.
