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.

Thomas Iland was diagnosed with autism at 13 years old and has worked hard to achieve his goals: driving, living on his own, graduating from college, finding work and having a girlfriend. A certified public accountant (CPA), Thomas recently left the field of accounting in order to help people with autism become their best selves. His first book, "Come to Life! Your Guide to Self-Discovery," discusses what he has learned along the way and how he created his mantra: "Know Yourself. Love Yourself. Be Yourself."
