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.

Limited Capacity filling up

The Workforce Opportunity and Innovation Act (WIOA) has opened up endless opportunities for students and individuals with disabilities to learn skills to help facilitate post-secondary vocational success. However, time has proven that the unexpected benefits of Pre-Employment Transition Services lies in the relationships that are built that strengthen the discovery process, facilitate identification of individual needs, and develop trust that ultimately leads to enhanced job development and Competitive, Integrated, Employment (CIE). Learn how one Kentucky Community Rehabilitation Provider (CRP) implemented and delivered the required activities through unique curriculum to reach individuals with the most significant impact of disabilities, those who often fall between the cracks without opportunities in adulthood. During this interactive session, providers, agencies, employers, parents and educational consultants learn how to work together to use WIOA guidelines to maximize the benefit of the student and/or job seeker. The speakers, who believe that collaboration is the key to success, will offer perspectives from a parent, provider, employer, educational consultant, and recreational therapeutic viewpoint. In addition proprietary curriculum techniques will be introduced that can help your agency or school also become a leader in the Pre-ETS field. Learn how the skills taught in Pre-Employment Transition can be used across disciplines in the areas of education, independent living and employment.
