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.

To help adults with co-occurring Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Intellectual Disability (ID) engage in more meaningful social experiences with others at home, work, and in the community a personal narrative (PN) intervention package was used to teach macrostructure elements within participant-generated PNs so that participants could share more coherent and complex PNs. To assess the effects of the intervention package a combined single-subject, multiple-baseline, and an A-B-A-B design across subjects design was used. Results from the study showed that all participants made positive gains in their ability to share personal stories with others. In addition, a measure of social validity suggests that participants found the intervention effect as well as meaningful.
