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 receiving my Bachelors of Arts from William Smith College in Psychology and Education and minoring in Child Advocacy and Public Policy with a concentration of Inclusion in the classroom. When I am not in class I can be found volunteering in the community at local schools and at local youth organizations for children with and without disabilities.
This summer, Diana Baker, Professor of Education and head researcher, Lyndsey Ackerman, another William Smith student getting her Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Bachelor of Arts in Education, and I conducted research on Somali mothers in regards to collaboration and communication between educators and service providers for students with autism. We used data collected from Professor Baker’s dissertation, interviews, and Individual Education Plans (IEPs) in order to develop common themes in addition to assessing the most effective strategies for enhancing communication between parents and service providers, more of which will be discussed during the poster presentation.
