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.

Limited Capacity filling up

KFI has been leading the way in providing services that support inclusion and self-determination since the mid 80's when we started shutting down all our segregated services. Through sharing of personal stories we will provide strategies and inspiration based on real experiences of people living rich and meaningful lives. Multiple scenarios will be reviewed including alternative ways to respond when someone is in "crisis", how to stretch support hours using natural supports when funding isn't enough, and how the dignity of risk can be a guiding principle when supporting people to live inclusive lives.
