KY-TASH

KY-TASH supports the inclusion and full participation of children and adults with disabilities in all aspects of their communities as determined by personalized visions of quality of life. KY-TASH's focus is on those people with disabilities who: Are most at risk for being excluded from the mainstream of society; Are perceived by traditional service systems as being most challenging; Are most likely to have their rights abridged; Are most likely to be at risk for living, working, playing and/or learning in segregated environments; Are least likely to have the tools and opportunities necessary to advocate on their own behalf; Historically have been labeled as having severe disabilities; and Are most likely to need ongoing, individualized supports in order to participate in inclusive communities and enjoy a quality of life similar to that available to all citizens. KYTASH accomplishes this through: Creating opportunities for collaboration among families, self-advocates, professionals, policymakers and other advocates; Advocating for equity, opportunities, social justice, and rights; Disseminating knowledge and information; Supporting excellence in research that translates to excellence in practice; Promoting individualized, quality supports; Working toward the elimination of institutions, other congregate living settings, segregated schools/classrooms, sheltered work environments, and other segregated services and toward replacing these with quality, individualized, inclusive supports; Supporting legislation, litigation and public policy consistent with KY-TASH's mission; and Promoting communities in which no one is segregated and everyone belongs.
