Denver! TASH 2010

TASH is The Association for people with Severe Handicaps and this year’s conference is in Denver, where i’ve never been.   Denver’s been fun – amazing food and everything is so clean.   how do they keep it so clean?   could Denver come to my house and clean a little?   i went to lots of amazing workshops today – really amazing.   learned lots, felt proud to be with some of the leaders around who are so welcoming to us.   but the singular thing was going to a workshop on LGBTQI and Disability by this lovely powerhouse woman who talked about her experience and the work that she’s being engaged in around Mass. communities meeting with people and answering their questions and engaging them to create peer support groups.   Lovely.   And about time 🙂

gotta get to bed; tomorrow we present 🙂

Director of Research, Training and Development, Spectrum Society for Community Living. As well as being responsible for in-house training and research on best practices in the field of helping people with disabilities organize their supports, I support self advocacy groups, contract to provide training and workshops to other agencies and groups and facilitate inclusive research groups. I am the author/illustrator of three books, co-editor of a new anthology for 2012, and co-editor of Spectrum Press. My passion is creating networks of best practice leaders in our field to share person-centred alternatives in how people with disabilities can be facilitated to live lives where their gifts are necessary components in their communities. I am currently half way through a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary studies, focusing on Equity and Adult Education, and particularly on how people with intellectual disabilities may be supported in participatory leadership groups.
