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.

Despite a well-established research base, high quality inclusive school practices remain tenuous in many schools and districts. By engaging in self-evaluation of inclusive practices, school teams are able to critically evaluate systems at their school site in relation to evidence-based practices, and make informed decisions regarding new systems, priorities, and training. Presenters will share how they have worked with stakeholder teams at multiple school sites, elementary through high school, to tailor and implement self-evaluation tools, facilitate discussion and analysis of data, and establish achievable goals with educator and administrator buy-in. Focus schools include sites who are relatively new to inclusive practices and schools with well-established inclusive approaches. Several free self-evaluation tools (available online) will be shared, as well as the process used by school teams to leverage this stakeholder input to make meaningful and sustainable changes to improve both access and outcomes for all students.
