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.

As school ends, families look to provide their children with a typical summer experience. Summer camps provide routine and recreational opportunities for children to express creativity, achieve and master new skills and build friendships. Nearly 9 percent of children in North America are defined as having significant disabilities (National Center for Education Statistics, 2016). Due to an increase in disability prevalence, there is a strong need to provide summer camp experiences for all children. Inclusive recreational programming can be particularly important for youth with autism to practice social skills, physical aptitude and increase social motivation. It is vital to provide proper training and supports to families and staff to provide a meaningful recreational experience. In this training, participants will learn the benefits of inclusive recreational programs, effective strategies for all individuals including behavioral skills training (BST), and explore ways to transform their current program to become more inclusive.
