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.

Limited Capacity filling up

Schoolwide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS) has been implemented in over 23,000 schools across the country; however, questions remain as to how students with extensive support needs (ESN) participate in this practice. In this study, a survey of experts in SWPBIS was completed to assess the ways they perceive students with ESN participate in different aspects of SWPBIS (e.g., rewards systems). The results of this study will be discussed from the perspective of supporting all students to have access to high-quality, evidence-based and effective positive behavior supports. The results of this study will also be discussed within the context of creative, specific ideas for including students with ESN in all aspects of SWPBIS including ways instruction, materials, and schoolwide structures can be adapted to be accessible for all students, including students with ESN.
