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

Maryland's implementation of 1915k Community First Choice (CFC) has created significant challenges for individuals with developmental disabilities who are also eligible for HCBS waiver services. At the heart of the issue is whether the State is facilitating or inhibiting people's independence and ability to access the community as desired. Limitations in CFC along with restrictions in personal supports available under the DD waiver are creating systemwide problems, as people with the most significant disabilities are funneled into less flexible, limited CFC services with serious impacts on community inclusion, self-direction, and quality of services.
