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.

Transitions have been improved by partnering students with and without disabilities in reciprocal learning relationships at Empire High in Tucson, Arizona. The use of peer mentorship has demonstrated successful outcomes in post K-12 education and employment for all students involved. Learn how one school has redefined norms in inclusive education by using peer mentorship from video interviews with peer mentors (including students with extensive support needs) and educators.
