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.

Preparing paraprofessionals to work within inclusive settings is critical for building inclusive communities. Specifically, the ways in which prompts are delivered and faded can have an impact on the independence of learners. The study presented will describe a professional development package implemented by an inclusion specialist in a public elementary school. Results of the study showed the package was effective for training paraprofessionals to follow a prompt delivery schedule and improved outcomes for learners.
