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.

Fostering social connectedness and meaningful participation is essential to the success of inclusive educational programming. Such belonging often hinges on the support and facilitation provided by education professionals. The current study systematically evaluates the literature on education professionals' perceptions of and attitudes towards inclusive education. The presentation is well aligned with the 2018 TASH theme "Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life." An individual's educational career is a significant portion of their life and provides the foundation for successful community integration in adult life. The focus of the proposed presentation is to provide an overview of themes and trends in the extant literature related to attitudes and perceptions of inclusive education in attempt to help the field realize progress made and areas of need in establishing full inclusion of all students with disabilities. We believe a first step in addressing many of the social injustices faced by students with severe disabilities in school settings is understanding the voices of the various stakeholders involved in the implementation of inclusive education, both historical trends and emerging themes. TASH envisions, that "all individuals with disabilities enjoy individualized supports and a quality of life similar to that available to all people" and we feel that the proposed session is a building block toward achieving this vision.
