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.

Since its founding in 1946, Meeting Street has been on the vanguard of educational best practice for students with special needs and a strong advocate for the proliferation of inclusive education. At Meeting Street, inclusive education utilizes a flexible, dynamic approach in which students with and without special needs learn side-by-side, every day to achieve their individual, developmentally appropriate, academic, social and therapeutic goals. To this end, Meeting Street wishes to share its inclusive Writer's Workshop model, which has been implemented with strong results at The Grace School, our nationally recognized, fully inclusive K-8 independent school located in Providence, Rhode Island. The Writer's Workshop presentation will provide teachers with a guide to leveraging the key elements of the workshop format, including whole-class, small-group and individualized instruction. Topics will include supporting independence for students with special needs and Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) as a writer's tool. The presentation will offer faculty insights on planning, implementation and considerations for teachers interested in implementing an inclusive writer's workshop at their own school, or within their own classroom.
