Transition - What NOW
Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4
Have you ever felt limbo? Well, I think that is what this "in between" is what my kid is feeling. He applied to DVR and the school transition program doesn't start until this fall. My kid wants to work. I love that!
I am going to go dark on the transition subject. My son turned 18 so this is totally "his story" now. There is a lot I would like to share but I want to preserve at least a bit of my son's privacy on this blog.
HOWEVER, I still plan on sharing all the interesting autism/mental health links I come across. I am always open for questions on autism, transition and mental health in the comment section.
