Federal Officials Join TASH in Portland

As we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the 40th anniversary of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and the 40th anniversary of TASH, people with significant support needs still want and deserve better lives than what is typically available. It’s with the help of federal officials that the TASH community can fulfill its shared promise…

“If we do our jobs, people with severe disabilities
will live productive, safe, healthy, happy and
integrated lives.”
Lou Brown
