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.

In 2014, over three years of state testing data were examined to identify Arizona districts and schools that closed the achievement gap between students with disabilities and their non-disabled peers. In 2017, the findings of this study were published. Six clearly identifiable characteristics were detected that increased academic gains for students with disabilities. In this presentation, one of the authors of the study will share how these six characteristics can be duplicated across other US schools.
