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.

Limited Capacity seats available

This presentation will discuss findings from a research study that investigated the barriers teachers face when planning school and community-based work experiences for students with intellectual disability, and strategies for improving accessibility for students with significant support needs. This presentation directly aligns with the conference theme, Building Diverse and Inclusive Communities, by identifying barriers that hinder the participation of students in community-based employment. In order to promote student participation in community-based employment, it is imperative that these barriers are identified and addressed.
