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 full

It's often the little things that make for living a good life. To be a part of a diverse, inclusive community, people with disabilities, their families and caregivers must dream big by looking beyond goals to ordinary, everyday life events. This includes everything from playdates, cultural celebrations, religious activities and sports to dating, marriage, college, work and end of life arrangements. We will share from both the parent and professional perspectives, things to consider at different stages of life and suggest resources that can help people build thriving, inclusive lives of their own.
