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.

Avenues Supported Living Services
Director
Valencia, CA
Scott Shepard is the Executive Director of Avenues Supported Living Services, a non-profit agency which provides community living and personalized day supports to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in North Los Angeles County. With Avenues SLS, we had the opportunity to begin services one person at a time, and it took ten years to reach our goal to support twenty people in their own homes and community. Since that time, we have mentored two other agencies that provide community living services. Scott also teaches part-time at CSU Northridge on courses related to Behavior Assessment and PBS, and Issues Related to Transition for Students with Disabilities. Scott serves on the Santa Clarita Valley Mayor’s Committee for Employment of Individuals with Disabilities, and on the Board of Cal-TASH.
