2019 TASH Conference
Attending this event?
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 seats available

Avenues SLS has conducted over 25 legislative visits annually over the past few years, locally, at our State Capital and as part of our Cal-TASH Conference, with each and every visit including a family member and/or a person we support. It is essential that our legislators and their staff meet and hear the stories of the people we support in order for them to understand the importance of quality, person-centered services that are inclusive. It is equally essential that people who don't communicate well, or who don't communicate traditionally have ways to share their stories, through technology, ppts or slide shows so that their stories can be heard.
