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.

Courtney is a young woman who belongs to a real community of friends and family in her town in rural Maine. Her connections are not accidental, but the result of intentional and consistent efforts by her family and supporters. In this presentation, Courtney's Mom will share how building community with her daughter started shortly after birth and continues every day. "Community" is not a location, or a place for an outing. Community is a fellowship of people connected by interests, passions, attitudes, and goals.
