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.

This presentation will be focused on data from a two-part study of matched pairs of children/youth with extensive support needs. Specifically, 15 children/youth who were included for more than 80% of their day in general education classrooms, and 15 children who were educated in segregated classrooms. Last year, the data from part one of the study were shared. The focus was on observational data of a typical school day for the matched pairs. This year our focus will be on part 2 in which we studied the educational progress/outcomes for the matched pairs of children. A content analysis was completed in which data from the first full IEP was compared to the last IEP at the time of the study. A panel of experts was then asked to anonymously rate the level of progress for each child, without being told whether this child was educated in an inclusive or segregated program. The data was then statistically analyzed. Results will be shared with the participants, and time for discussion will be provided. Our team includes a University researcher and two school district administrators, so reflection on policy and practice will be shared.
