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.

The World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) offers a framework that is used internationally to measure and promote the full participation of people with disabilities in their communities. We will use this framework to look at and discuss research results in the United States around the HCBS settings rule, shifting a service model in Oregon, realizing person-centered employment, and the role of families in supporting participation in community living. This presentation will go over trends in the service system, Oregon's recent changes, person centered employment initiatives, and the roles of families.
