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

This three-hour session will cover many of the crucial areas of supported decision-making (SDM) practice now taking place in the US and elsewhere. This will include SDM legislative initiatives in the US, SDM being combined with other supports, progress with rights restoration, capacity building with people interested in SDM, SDM in the health care context, educational and capacity building efforts directed to expanding SDM, creating coalitions and alliances to build interests and support in SDM, the continuing emergence of a variety of SDM resources, SDM being targeted to specific groups (e.g. developmentally disabled, elders, people with mental health needs, children, people with communication challenges, families and other supporters of people practicing SDM, etc.), pilot projects involving SDM, protective options that can be easily coupled with SDM, challenges to the quality of SDM practice, and more. The intent for the session is to be exploratory and participatory and would be open to interested people who are initially exploring SDM as well as people with much longer engagement with SDM practice.
