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.

I'm graduating, now what? The transition from educational services to adulthood can be a challenging time for some people as daily life evolves and known structure and connections can be lost. This is a very important stage in one's life and is a critical time to build confidence and connections to their broader community. Learn how individuals within a Wisconsin community identified gaps and then worked collaboratively together to shape opportunities that have resulted in inclusive and quality lives for young adults. In this session, you will hear from Inclusa, Wisconsin's largest managed long-term care organization, a local YMCA, and a self-advocate who will share their story on how, in one community, they were able to co-create a space for individuals to build from each other's strengths and experiences, ultimately resulting in building one's own social capital. This collaboration began almost 6 years ago and has now evolved into two community groups supported by self-advocates (PINC - Partners in Nurturing Communities and TIL - Transitioning to Independent Lives). Based on these opportunities, many young adults have worked together to grow individual confidence in social situations and form new connections and relationships within their community.
