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.

This presentation will provide a brief overview of the research literature on preparing educators to partner with families of students with disabilities, including the results of a multiple-baseline design study by the presenter, which evaluated an innovative method for training pre-service teachers using simulated IEP meetings. The remainder of the session will provide instruction on a research-to-practice approach (derived from the multiple baseline design study) to incorporating simulation into pre-service and in-service training for professionals who participate in IEPs and other planning meetings with families. The intervention involves providing a training to participants that includes the use of a structured meeting agenda that encourages family partnership. Participants are then provided with IEP meeting scenarios and opportunities to role play with their peers as they navigate through simulated planning meetings. Special emphasis is placed on culturally competent approaches to building family partnerships.
