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.

Copper River School District
Director, Programs and Interventions
Glennallen, AK
I am the parent of a 30 yo daughter that has Down syndrome. Jennifer was always included in school and is now working part-time (over 8 years). She is now using the waiver and living semi-independently in her own apartment. Her independence has allowed me to begin some adventures of my own. I have my doctorate in education and am working as a Special Education Director for a small rural school district in Alaska. Both my daughter and I have a lot of support through family and friends. I also work as an educational consultant helping parents and school districts work cooperatively for the benefit of the student.
