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.

I am passionate about inclusion. I have been an advocate and supporter of Inclusive Education and Community since the 1970s and first joined TASH in 1979. I have teaching and administrative experience with inclusive programs for school-aged students and adults with disabilities dating back to 1982. My early work at the Center on Human Policy and Jowonio School in Syracuse formed the foundation for the work I now do as a teacher educator at Radford University preparing elementary and special education candidates to work with all students in inclusive settings. I am Co-Director of the Virginia Inclusive Practices Center at Radford University, and past president of Virginia TASH.
