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.

Recommended practices in providing applied behavior analysis services to infants and young children with autism indicate that early and intensive services tend to have the most positive outcomes. Behavior analysts are a relatively new profession to early intervention (EI) and early childhood special education (ECSE) teams, and there is a lack of guidance defining their role in supporting inclusive services. This poster will summarize and compare the scope of content and training for behavior analysts and EI/ECSE. We will also identify the strengths of each profession. Based on this comparison and analysis, we will conclude the poster with recommendations for the role of behavior analysts in EI/ECSE service delivery with an emphasis on practices that promote inclusion of infants and young children with autism in natural environments.
