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 filling up

A key principle in an inclusive, restructured school is maintaining natural proportions (i.e., ensuring that the percentage of students with disabilities in any particular class does not significantly exceed the percentage in the school as a whole). If too many students with disabilities or students with challenging behavior or other support needs are placed in one section, the range of support needs will make the class difficult to teach and many of the benefits of inclusive education (e.g., access to the curriculum, peer models, high expectations) may be lost. This session will describe the steps for scheduling students in natural proportions in general education classes and options for assigning collaborative teaching roles to general and specialized educators. Examples from elementary and middle schools will be used to highlight how inclusive scheduling practices can build the capacity of schools to support all learners.
