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.

Communication Support in Real Life Filling

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

People with little or no reliable speech receive (if fortunate) communication support during school ... but what happens after that, when real life begins? This panel of self-advocates and communication partners will present how this type of support happens in college, at work, on dates, during medical appointments, while traveling, and more. Self-advocates will bring pre-composed introductions and questions for the audience, and the entire panel will take live questions and facilitate discussion. Adult topics are encouraged, including relationships, sex, family challenges, etc.
