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.

How effective is systematic training when teaching parents of children with a disability? The presenters completed an exhaustive systematic review and meta-analysis and found 17 research studies that have evaluated the effects of training on parents of children with disabilities. This presentation will describe the methods of the systematic review and results of the meta-analysis that show BST is an effective parent training strategy. We will discuss practical considerations when implementing BST with parents in their homes and the community. We will also discuss future directions for research.
