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.

Bellevue, WA
My name is Grant Blasko and I am 20 years old. I am a nonspeaking autistic college student, and I use AAC full-time to communicate.
I serve as an Advisory Council member for the civil rights organization, CommunicationFIRST, and I have been a member of the TASH Communication Access Practice for 5 years. I have been an advocate for autism, especially for those with complex communication challenges, since I was 11 years old. I’m proud of work where I have had an opportunity to stand up for what I believe needs to improve for the benefit of autistic individuals.
