TASH continues its tradition of offering a broad range of concurrent sessions. Participants will have the opportunity to customize the conference experience to meet their particular needs and interests. It will also give participants the opportunity to explore other sectors in the field of equal access and inclusiveness. These sessions will stimulate discussion between presenters and participants. All of our concurrent sessions have undergone a rigorous academic vetting process to ensure that:
All sessions will reflect the full inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of community life. Presentations will reflect the participation of individuals with significant disabilities in inclusive settings (e.g., inclusive schools, community living, integrated employment) or efforts to transition individuals with significant disabilities into more inclusive settings (e.g., transition from congregate living situations to privately owned homes).
All sessions addresses accessibility and universal design so that all attendees may participate fully. Presentation will incorporate content in alternative formats (e.g., handouts available as computer text files or in large print, captioned videos) to ensure that participants have access.
All sessions make every attempt to address impact on diverse populations. Presenters will make every attempt to include the role or impact of diversity and cultural competency within their presentation. For nearly 40 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.
