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 more individuals utilizing speech-generating devices are living independently or being left alone for periods of time, it is imperative that they have access to emergency services and get the help they need. After consulting with various 911 Call Centers in Colorado, a series of emergency messages and resources have been developed and shared with individuals who are non-verbal, their family members, caregivers, speech language pathologist, and other clinicians for more inclusive participation in the community. This presentation will share these messages, review the process followed for developing them, and explore creative approaches to implement them in the community. Additional innovative low-tech solutions will also be shared.
