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.

This session addresses the topic of inclusion with particular focus on how pre-service teachers view inclusion through service learning. The experiential learning provides opportunities for candidates to deepen their perspectives and maximize their understanding of inclusion for all learners through hand-on experiences and reflection. Pre-service teachers conduct open dialogue interviews with teachers in the field, paraprofessionals, administrators, and families to determine how the school community addresses inclusion. Other experiential activities include attending IEP/Section 504 meetings, engaging in community advocacy experiences, and participating in other professional development opportunities.
