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.

University of Kansas
Graduate Research Assistant / PhD Candidate
I am a doctoral candidate in the Department of Special Education at the University of Kansas. Through my research, I seek to identify and understand factors influencing the post-school outcomes of adults with intellectual disability and their families. My research centers around understanding the perspectives and experiences of people with intellectual disability and their families; analyzing long-term support systems and the policies that govern them; and identifying effective strategies to be implemented by secondary special education teachers and transition specialists.
