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.

It is widely recognized that while the parent role changes, it does not end, and effective ongoing family engagement leads to more positive post-school outcomes for youth with significant disabilities. Balancing the need for parents to be appropriately involved while promoting the youth' s self-determination and independence often poses challenges for families as well as programs and service providers. In this interactive session presented from the parent point of view, participants will hear parent-to-parent tips for transitioning from IEP team member and lead advocate to a supporting, yet vital role as the parent of a young adult. Learn about effective parent involvement practices and explore age-and-stage appropriate ways to encourage young adults' growth in autonomy and self-determination.
