My son is graduating this year. after years of dealing with the schools and IEP's, we find ourselves thinking what is next? My son is 19, high functioning. He is currently doing a job internship in the afternoons and has done so all this school year, working a couple of hours at various locations and back grounds to see what would be a good fit.
For those of you in the states, I would strongly recommend vocational rehabilitation. They do work with individuals with varying disabilities. My son has been thru the process, we came up with a job plan which includes for any new job a job coach who will go with my son to his place of employment and making sure that he doesn't have any questions and is doing the job correctly. it is much like an IEP. He, while still in school, and since in our area, is doing a job internship has been receiving pay for it thru vocational rehab.
for those that need a GED, they also offer services to help with that. and for those 21 and older, they do provide transportation to various job sites. I have found it to be a great program and would highly recommend it.
You know the story, i had underweight from 16 to 20 years with 55 kg due to anxiety. Then at 20 years old the weight was very normal. I had bad sitting positions in front of the computer at home and also in school for many hours a day. Maybe i had poor nutrition or lack of minerals although the blood tests didn't say that. At 19 years the 20° S curve scoliosis was diagnosed. Noone saw it before,...
I would like to ask for prayers for my son who is having a very difficult time in his life right now, he recently had a massive heart attack, and is having major problems in his life. He is feeling very alone and without hope. He is really needing a small miracle to let him know he is loved and not alone. Thank you very much. God bless you all.
