He has a wonderful team and will work with Vocational Rehab, which will him with any needs to get him through school. Than we have an IEP that will follow him to college and they also have a special needs counselor that will him throughout. We will see how that works out. It's worth a try. All we can do is see if he is capable and just go with it. I know sometimes he has troubles staying on task and has a lot of melt downs at times when he thinks he is not capable, the change of routine will be hard and socializing with new people will be hard. You know what it's like I am sure. So this will be a big challenge for him and I am just glad he is willing to try.
Wow! It sounds like there is a great program for him. I hope I can get him to a college that offers something similar. I didn't know that the IEP can last through college, I thought it was just high school. That's something I'm going to have to research. I hope everything works out well for you!!
