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

Nationally, districts and states vary widely in placement practices for students with disabilities. This is particularly true for students with Intellectual Disability and Autism labels, who have historically been educated primarily outside of general education settings. Exploring the current landscape of access to general education contexts is critical in the movement toward increasing such access for some of the most marginalized students with disabilities. The purpose of this study was to investigate the variability in educational placements across districts in California and New York, particularly focusing on students with Intellectual Disability and Autism. This study explored the current landscape of placement of students with Intellectual Disability, Autism, and Specific Learning Disability using geographic mapping, and the perceptions of district-level administrators on placement of students with Intellectual Disability and Autism in an effort to identify possible factors associated with trends in access to general education contexts in the states of California and New York.
