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.

Siblings, Sarah and Rachel, and siblings, Megan and Brenna, share the hiccups, hurdles, and ableism that is a reality for folks with disabilities. They will use humor, resourcefulness, and perspective to describe the creative solutions that happen when you tackle issues with dedication, love, education, and determination. Sharing stories around communication, independent living, social participation, and more, this team of siblings are using story-telling/autoethnography as the lens through which they can capture the experiences of four siblings navigating a world that is perpetually/continually/still needs to learn to accept them.
