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.

Alabama TASH
Birmingham, AL
I am a parent of a son born with congenital hydrocephalus. Kyle is 18 and is nonverbal and uses both a manual and power chair. This is my 2nd consecutive year to attend TASH. Since my first conference last year in St. Louis, I along with my mentor and friend, Susan Ellis, organized the first TASH budding AlabamaTASH chapter. We will be voted on and made official at this year's Atlanta conference! Kyle was also chosen to present on Thursday at 4:25 session - "Teen JobSeeker".
Kyle and I are very excited to be here again this year to learn and make more new friends.
