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 full

Science, self-determination, and critical thinking are a vital part of our everyday experiences. Yet, for students with disabilities, science is often not prioritized, limited to nutrition, health and safety, or is just considered "too difficult" for students to learn (Courtade, Spooner & Browder, 2007). This session will provide participants with 1) a focus on understanding the NGSS and the instructional practices that support implementing those standards, 2) understanding Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles and how to implement them in the inclusive classroom, and 3) making lessons accessible for all students, especially those with extensive support needs. We focus on building general and special educators' abilities to collaborate to improve their content knowledge and understanding of Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and to develop UDL content, materials, and instruction because we want to help improve opportunities for all students to learn STEM education.
