Publishing in Inclusive Practices

Inclusive Practices is a practitioner-focused, research-to-practice journal designed to advance the TASH mission of equity, opportunity, and inclusion, for people with significant support needs. Significant support needs refers to 1-2% of people with extensive and pervasive support needs across domains. Historically, this group has been characterized as having “severe” disabilities. Articles in Inclusive Practices should target research-based strategies and how they may translate into practice. Topics must be of importance to practitioners working in the field of significant support needs (e.g., inclusion in the community, inclusive education, competitive integrated employment, self-advocacy, policy, integrated community living, diversity, human rights). You can submit your manuscripts online here. You can learn more about the submission guidelines here.
