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 systematic review identified quantity and quality of intervention research targeting increases in physical activity (PA) skills and access for students with significant disabilities (SD) in schools for a 20 year time period. Eligible studies were evaluated according to What Works Clearinghouse and Horner et al. (2005) quality indicators. Finally, interventions from eligible studies were evaluated for evidence based practice designation. This research aligns with the conference theme because the documented health disparities faced by people with SD are one of many examples of inequities between this population and those who are typically developing. It is therefore important to identify promising interventions to address exercise habits and improve health and well-being beginning in childhood for those with SD.
