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.

I have been an advocate for my 33-year-old daughter, Annie, and other for more than 30 years. I strongly believe that every person with a disability can live the life they choose with the supports they need to make it happen. Our organization, the IAMC, works to achieve that for people with IDD, one person at a time.
I also host a weekly radio program on disability issues. Disability Beat airs every Monday from 5:30-6pm on WEFT Community Radio in Champaign IL and can be heard as a live webcast at www.weft.org/listen, as a podcast on iTunes or Soundcloud, or on Radio Free America. I'm always looking for great guests!
