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 seats available

Youth with autism and learning differences are a particularly vulnerable population and are seven times more likely to have an encounter with law enforcement or other first responders. Youth with autism and learning differences are often not prepared for such an encounter and may run, fight, reach to touch the responder or his/her tools/equipment or reach into their own pockets unexpectedly resulting in possible escalation, injury or death. "Be Safe" offers direct, explicit instruction to teach youth how to properly behave when meeting with police and first responders.
