  • If I remember correctly until 21 years of age. Too lazy to go dig out the paperwork. My oldest is in 6th grade, well I guess 7th grade now so I have awhile yet.

  • Not sure about all the ins and outs in Colorado, but my stepson will qualify for at least one extra year at Pitkins Tech School after he graduates from regular high school. He has ADHD, Asperger's, and some other issues.

  • I believe it's 21 overall here too, but the ASD support class that my son is in is only offered through 2nd grade. I strongly believe he will graduate with his class though, if not a year later.

  • NC - he can start his last year of school at 21 (which means he'll be 22 when he finishes).
