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.

Implementation Specialist
The last time I presented at TASH was about twenty-five (25) years ago. My session was titled, "What HOT in Regular Education". I talked with special educators about what was happening in general education classrooms (e.g. cooperative learning, writer's workshop). I'm not the world's greatest presenter but I remember it was standing room only because I think we knew ---even back then --- that it was about changing curriculum, not changing learners. I'm honored to be back at TASH.
