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.

It is a frustrating reality that students with significant cognitive disabilities continue to be educated in separate placements and settings where exposure to the general education classroom, peers, and core curriculum is limiting, despite advances in identifying effective and practical inclusion tools and strategies for serving students with disabilities. TIES Center was funded a year ago by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) as the new National Technical Assistance Center on Inclusive Practices and Policies. In this session, we will then share TIES Center's vision for the future, and how TIES Center is working to address the complex and interrelated root causes that contribute to the barriers that negatively impact students with significant cognitive disabilities. This presentation aligns with the theme of "Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life" by describing how TIES Center is learning from partnering with a state to work intensively on implementing and sustaining policies and practices designed to bring about real change. The session will conclude with a discussion about how to "tie" all the pieces together to successfully implement and sustain inclusive education.
