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.

This session will provide methodology, strategies and tools for Employment Specialists to manage the employer engagement process to achieve stronger employer relationships. This session is intended to assist employment staff who work with local employers to offer consistent, quality employment services that benefit a business' operation. The information provided is based on the U.S. Dept. of Labor Office on Disability and Employment Policy (ODEP) Employer Economic Impact Study. This national study provided an employer's perspective on the benefits and economic impact of employment services including customized employment when hiring job candidates with a disability. These employers describe how customized employment has had a direct economic impact on their overall operation. Specific, measurable benefits that other Employment Specialists can use to describe their services will be presented.
