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.

This poster will describe results from a research study that examined the extent to which student characteristics (e.g., gender, grade level, ethnicity, and level of disability) related to student participation in school and community work-based learning experiences (WBLEs). Additionally, the relation between student characteristics and the amount of time students spent at school or community WBLEs will be described. This poster directly relates to the theme of the conference because it promotes student participation in work experiences that prepares students to work in inclusive communities.
