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

Students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), who transition to postsecondary education, must actively acquire their accommodations. Self-advocacy interventions have been identified as critical skills for students with disabilities in accessing accommodations (Janinga & Costenbader, 2002; Test et al., 2005). This multiple probe across participants study examined the effects of Self-Advocacy (SACR; Rumrill et al., 1999) instruction on the ability to request accommodations for four college students with IDD. Results indicated a functional relation between self-advocacy instruction and the students' ability to request accommodations from their instructors.
