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 seats available

Supported decision-making is a less restrictive alternative to legal guardianship for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Instead of using legal guardianship to take away the rights of people with disabilities, supported decision-making allows people with disabilities to keep their rights as adults but develops a support network to assist them in making well-informed decisions. In this presentation, participants will learn about supported decision-making and how it differs from legal guardianship. Participants will also learn how to develop their own supported decision-making agreements.
