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.

Too often people like me, autistic and non-verbal, are excluded from fun experiences. Whether it is in school, at home, or on the job, with proper supports, we can and should be given the opportunity to participate in recreational and leisure activities. With still photography and videos, I will demonstrate how I have been able to enjoy life. I am no longer a student, but I will talk about the fun things I did while in college, for example, going to museums, the race track and Las Vegas. I will also show pictures from cruises I went on and a trip to Cuba. Because I live in my own house, I am able to plan leisure activities in the community. I always like to land on my feet, so I am never going to swim for fun. I also have arthritis and poor balance so sports are out of the question; however, I can enjoy short hikes, going to the beach, movies, the theater, clubs, Dodger games and Disneyland. My microenterprise gives me the opportunity to enjoy spending time with Becky, my micro-enterprise consultant, and Michelle, my job coach. Relationships like that are extremely awesome. I will talk about what supports are needed to make all of these experiences happen.
