Effective communication is a fundamental element of life. Relationships, choice, employment, and so much more are severely limited by an inability to communicate. Let’s make effective communication a reality for people with disabilities. Join TASH’s new campaign, Communication for All. The campaign was created to promote life-long communication for people with disabilities through awareness, professional development, access to communication technologies, instruction, and support. Join the campaign and help promote life-long communication for all! Learn more.
“The IEP is not a form.” A quote made by Chief Justice John Roberts in the Supreme Court’s Endrew F. v. Douglas County Schools opinion, provides parents of children with disabilities some relief. On March 22, 2017, the Supreme Court sided with Endrew’s family with a unanimous (8-0) vote. The decision could have far-reaching implications for the 6.5 million students in America who have an IEP. Join TASH and the IDEA in protecting children with disabilities and their right to an education. TASH has created a campaign that contains resources about the IEP, including an issue of our member magazine Connections. We’ve also designed a t-shirt. Visit the campaign page to purchase a t-shirt.
