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.

All children in the United States have the right to an equitable education, regardless of gender, religion, class, race, culture, language, or dis/ability. A critical examination of the socio political and contextual factors that fortify the barriers faced by marginalized groups highlights the need for a culturally responsive approach to educating students with multidimensional identities. This research uses the theoretical framework of Dis/ability Critical Race Studies (DisCrit) to examine how teachers perceive their ability to implement culturally responsive educational practices (CREP) for their Culturally Linguistically Diverse (CLD) students with dis/Abilities, (e.g. Emotional Disturbances, Intellectual Disabilities, and Learning Disabilities), This presentation will share the ways in which teachers describe their meanings and understandings about dis/abilities, race, culture, and language, how their experiences have prepared them to utilize culturally responsive instruction, and how they describe their actions toward implementing the goals of CREP.
