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.

We will discuss various examples of discrimination based on disability in student life and extracurricular activities at Colleges and Universities around the United States. We will also discuss various examples of issues relating to accessibility on college and university campuses around the world such as wheelchair inaccessibility and not having an ADA compliance friendly campus among other issues. Then we will ask for input from the audience on how they think universities and colleges can be more accessible for students with physical disabilities and more socially inclusive for students with any disability.
