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.

Director of RSA Shift Transition Project
Colorado Springs, CO
I have worked for PEAK Parent Center, Colorado's federally designated parent training and information center for over 30 years and before then served as a special education teacher in a Colorado Springs school district. I am the proud parent of an amazing gentleman, Rob Schaffner, who is a contributor and a "give it all I've got "participant in his life and the life of his family, friends, and community. He has transcended many challenges in his life due to society's treatment and beliefs about people with disabilities.
