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 study focused on the use of an observation system to measure dimensions between teachers in inclusive STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) classes and students with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). These dimensions included (a) the alignment of classroom activities and arrangements for the student with IDD to the general education class, (b) interactions between students and their peers, general educators, and support personnel (e.g., paraeducators, special educators, and related services providers), and (c) academic engagement with the presented activities. This study provides insights on the inclusive instruction for 15 students with IDD in general education STEM classrooms. Students were observed in their middle or high school STEM classes across a diverse, metropolitan school district. Additionally, classroom peers were observed to serve as comparison. Results will be discussed with implications for future research and practice.
