2016 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference strengthens the disability field by connecting attendees to innovative information and resources, facilitating connections between stakeholders within the disability movement, and helping attendees reignite their passion for an inclusive world. This year’s conference theme, “Gateway to Equity,” explores inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs, in living a fair, just, and balanced life.

Lehigh Universtiy
Emeritus Professor
After 40 years in the field of special education, I'm now Emeritus Professor from Lehigh University. Most of my work has focused on positive behavior supports (PBS) and supporting individuals with developmental disabilities to learn new skills and do more for themselves.  My current research interests (yes, I'm still engaged professionally) focuses on using peer-mediated interventions to enhance the conversational interactions between high school students with ASD and their peers in inclusive settings.  I'm former Editor-in-Chief of RPSD (then JASH), editorial board member of multiple journals, and currently co-chair of Home and Community Positive Behavior Supports (hcpbs.org), a non-profit network dedicated to provide PBS resources to families and providers supporting individuals in home and community settings.
