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.

Feedback form is now closed.
This interactive presentation will highlight the multi-agency collaboration and family partnerships necessary to support successful inclusion in early childhood programs. The importance of effective early intervention for young children and their families is well documented. Early childhood staff need to be supported by strong leadership, quality and meaningful professional development and access to ongoing opportunities to collaborate and problem solve with specialists. It is also critical that families are involved in all aspects of the child's program to build positive relationships with the staff as well as to support and nurture their young children at home. Planning tools and visual strategies will be shared to demonstrate how to individualize supports for full participation. Participants will hear from family members about the benefits of these partnerships to support them in the home and how this journey had prepared them for future school experiences.
