2018 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life,” reminds us to think outside the box during times of uncertainty. Creativity, innovation, and determination can pave the way for meaningful and inclusive lives for people with disabilities.

Limited Capacity seats available

The TASH Communication Workgroup will host this session focused on connecting established and emerging research related to Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) to a) the experiences of AAC users and b) practical strategies that teachers and support providers can use to increase access for the individuals they support. The field of AAC includes researchers, users, and practitioners. Newer evidence has strengthened previous knowledge regarding the power AAC modeling and core vocabulary, literacy for AAC users, contextualized instruction in natural settings, and advances related to access through available technologies (e.g. eye gaze and head mouse). We will work on bridging the divides that can sometimes occur between researchers, users, and practitioners by connecting both established and emerging research to the users who benefit from these approaches. In turn, users will share the types of support that have been most effective for them. Finally, practitioners will describe strategies for implementing evidence-based and emerging practices in schools, home and community.
