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 seats available

The Including All Citizens Project (IACP) is a pedagogical model that involves the full inclusion of students with ID into Faculty of Arts (FA) courses for credit and on equal basis with other students. This model opens the doors of education by making already existing university courses environments where all students can participate and succeed. Without adapting the academic foundation and content, IACP uses the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to transform teaching and deliver curriculum to a wide range of learners. It is a student-centered learning environment where everyone is included and valued on equal basis thereby making it an exemplary learning experience for all. Students in the IACP will receive their FA Certificate (FAC), an exit credential consisting of 30 academic credits (10 courses). The FAC pre-exists the IACP and is designed to provide an educational experience that prepares students for work, citizenship, and to engage critically with their communities.
