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.

Adults with IDD face significant obstacles in their daily lives that affect their economic well-being, such as limited employment and lack of autonomy over their finances. This transformative mixed method explanatory sequential proposal aims to explain and understand the financial well-being of adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD). Proposed methods include a quantitative phase followed by a qualitative phase, a researcher administered survey N = 66 to participants with IDD at two disability service centers followed by two focus groups with 16 co-researchers with IDD using PhotoVoice as a participatory action research methodology. The proposal seeks to give a voice to and empower adults with IDD by co-researching what financial well-being means then by disseminating the results to community stakeholders and policymakers. Participatory action research makes space for participants/co-researchers voices providing innovative solutions for inclusive life (i.e., inclusion in the financial marketplace) experiences.
