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.

State data from all states that receive special education funding showed increasing rates of students participating in alternate assessment based on alternate achievement standards. These data will be presented along with information about participation requirements in the Every Student Succeeds Act. Data also indicate that students who participate in the alternate assessment are most likely to be in segregated placements. These findings call for innovative approaches to IEP decision making decisions that result in appropriate assessment participation decisions and appropriate placement decisions.
