2020 TASH Conference - Virtual Edition has ended
Welcome to the 2020 TASH Conference - Virtual Edition website! We’re so glad you are here!

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together individuals with significant disabilities and their allies to share resources and success stories, learn about field-driven best practices, and network within a community engaged in shared values. The conference is attended by passionate advocates, leaders, and subject matter experts from every corner of the disability community. Conference attendees play an important role in supporting individuals with significant disabilities to overcome various barriers in order to live their best lives. Central to this work is the premise that individuals reach their optimal potential only when they are given the opportunity to live, work and thrive across the lifespan in the same communities we are all members of. The conference is intentionally designed to support the interests of professors and researchers from leading institutions; those involved in local, state, and federal governments and public policy; special and general educators, and school administrators; home and community-based service providers; students, family members, and most importantly, self-advocates with lived experience.

This year, while we are taking the conference virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we believe that our unique approach to providing exceptional first-rate content and building strong community ties and connections across various stakeholders will yield an extraordinary event! We have taken extra steps to bring people closer together during these times, as well as to create an amazing virtual environment that expands our knowledge, spurs our creative thinking, and focuses on healthy living and having fun!  Our conference theme, Feel the Power of Inclusion, reinforces the importance of our continued commitment to promoting a world of equity and opportunity for all, and is predicated on the value of bringing together diverse perspectives and experiences in an effort to build strong human connectivity and spur collective action.

Georgia Client Assistance Program
Decatur, GA
Prior to joining The Georgia Client Assistance Program as an Advocate/Counselor, my years in the field of rehabilitation were spent with two different state VR programs -- Missouri VR & The Georgia Vocational Rehabilitaton Agency. During my time with MOVR, I held various caseloads (General, Mobility/SCI, Project Search, and Transition) and served as a Statewide Assistive Technology/Home & Vehicle Modification Specialist. A Rehabilitation Unit Manager position led me to GVRA. After serving on numerous committees & agency initiatives for 3+ years, I made the hard decision to leave my position as a Service Area 9 Manager where I oversaw 3 offices serving fifteen counties in Middle & Southern Georgia to join CAP. In my current role, I assist applicants/clients of GVRA in addition to connecting Georgians with disabilities statewide to local resources in an effort to address their needs.
