For more than 37 years, the TASH Conference has impacted the disability field by connecting attendees to innovative information and resources, facilitating connections between stakeholders in the disability movement, and helping attendees reignite their passion for the full inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of community life.
The annual TASH Conference is the educational, networking and advocacy event of the year for parents, self-advocates and professionals in the disability field. Each year, more than a thousand attendees come together at the TASH Conference to share innovative ideas, ground breaking research and learn effective strategies for supporting equity, independence and opportunity in the lives of people with significant disabilities.
By bringing together research, practice and advocacy, the TASH Conference builds bridges between stakeholders in the field and unites them in advancing inclusive lives for people with significant disabilities.
This year’s theme draws its inspiration from three challenges facing the disability community today:
1) people with disabilities are often lumped into segregated (or parallel) systems and services
2) there are significant gaps in the communication between systems and services
3) the wide array of stakeholders in the disability field approach issues differently, and are not always aligned to advance towards the common goal of equity , opportunity and inclusion in all aspects of community life.
