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.

Avenues SLS will also share how a recommitment to the use of systematic instruction has led to significant improvements in improving independence in the lives of people they support and has helped demonstrate how SLS staff are Instructional Coaches, and not simply care-providers.
