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.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL): Access & Agency for ALL Learners Full

Limited Capacity full

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for learning based on neuroscience research that recognizes the ways ALL learners vary in how they engage with the world, how they make meaning of it, and how they interact with ideas, materials and each other. The framework scaffolds educators to anticipate and pro-actively design for this learner variability. UDL isn't about changing the learner; it's about changing the curriculum. It's about access — designing so all learners can "reach" the learning, and it's about agency-designing so all learners become expert learners — purposeful and motivated, strategic and goal-directed, resourceful and knowledgeable. The overall goal of this session is to provide participants with an understanding of UDL that is solid enough to serve as a foundation for continued learning. (And we will have fun — a few good laughs are guaranteed.)
