TASH is an international association of people with disabilities, their family members, other advocates, and professionals fighting for a society in which inclusion of all people in all aspects of society is the norm. TASH is an organization of members concerned with human dignity, civil rights, education, and independence for all individuals with disabilities. We have over thirty chapters and members from thirty-four different countries and territories. Since our inception over twenty-five years ago, TASH has gained international acclaim for our uncompromising stand against separatism, stigmatization, abuse and neglect. We actively promote the full inclusion and participation of persons with disabilities in all aspects of life. TASH believes that no one with a disability should be forced to live, work, or learn in a segregated setting; that all individuals deserve the right to direct their own lives. TASH 's mission is to eliminate physical and social obstacles that prevent equity, diversity, and quality of life.

Relay Services is a communication service for the deaf, hard-of-hearing and speech-disabled communities who wish to communicate with a hearing person who uses a standard telephone. Standard TTY relay calls are generally made using a teletype writer, also known as a TTY, a communications device equipped with a keyboard for typing messages and a screen for reading messages. The TTY is connected to standard phone lines and the user dials a Communications Assistant directly. Once connected, the TTY user types their message to the Communications Assistant who relays it by reading it aloud to the hearing person. The Communications Assistant then listens to the hearing persons reply and relays it back to the TTY user through type. The TRS is part of the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Disability Rights Office (DRO).

The Ticket to Work Program provides most people receiving Social Security benefits (beneficiaries) more choices for receiving employment services. Under this program the Social Security Administration (SSA) issues ticket to eligible beneficiaries who, in turn, may choose to assign those tickets to an Employment Network (EN) of their choice to obtain employment services, vocational rehabilitation services, or other support services necessary to achieve a vocational (work) goal. The EN, if they accept the ticket, will coordinate and provide appropriate services to help the beneficiary find and maintain employment.
