2019 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference brings together our constituents to share resources and success stories, learn about field-driven best practices, and network within a community engaged in shared values. The Conference is attended by passionate leaders, experts, and advocates from every corner of the disability community. Conference attendees are influential in their fields and communities, and play an important role in the provision of services and supports for the millions of individuals and organizations around the world; and include professors and researchers from leading institutions; those involved in local, state, and federal governments and public policy; special and general educators, and school administrators; self-advocates, adult service providers; students, family members, and many others.  This year’s conference theme, Building Diverse and Inclusive Communities, reminds us that equity, opportunity, and inclusion relies on the input of broad perspectives and experiences.

In this interview study, the authors identified what post-high students (from two US locales - one in the Midwest and one in the South) reported with respect to their interest in pursuing higher education at a nearby four-year institution where they currently visited on a regular basis either for work exploration/internships or individual tutoring. The findings from this study suggest ideas on how to "Build Diverse and Inclusive Communities." The interviews are a first step toward a future Community Conversation with University administrators and other interested parties to advocate for enrollment in university coursework and move beyond "visitor status" only.
