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.

Changing the Narrative on Support Relationships: It's Not Just 9-to-5 Filling

Limited Capacity filling up

We all look to others for various supports in each area of our life. With so much of our time spent at work, the relationships we have with our colleagues are significant. Working in tandem, collaborating, and traveling together often leads to the shifting of these relationships — paving the way for reliability, trust, and camaraderie. This is especially important in work relationships between people with disabilities and their nondisabled peers. EVERYONE benefits where there are mutual affection and supports! The presenters will share their stories of coming together in the workplace, and how those relationships led to ones of flourishing and friendship.
