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.

This presentation discusses how participants can leverage creative partnerships to increase systems change advocacy. Specifically, the presenters discuss how two University professors collaborated with four Parent Training and Information Centers (i.e., Massachusetts, Illinois, Tennessee, and New Hampshire) to educate and empower parents of children with disabilities to conduct systems change advocacy. Notably, the parents were from underserved (e.g., minority, low-income, and English as a second language) backgrounds. Thus, this abstract perfect aligns with the theme as this project was a creative representation of different stakeholders who connected in four different states to strengthen the disability field.
