For starters you should have him apply for services with your local State Vocational Rehabilitation Office. The federal government mandated in 1983 and amended in 1997 the IDEA act which provides transition services to youth who are disabled. There is assistance available to help youth with disabilities to transition from high school to either work or higher education. If you need any assistance on finding the right agencies in your area please feel free to PM me. Each University or College has a Disability Support Services office (or similar name). You need to have your son take documentation of his disabilities to this office to arrange any and all accommodations that he will need in school. If something comes along later and he needs further accommodations he can go back to them and ask for assistance. This office will also assist him with any professors who do not respect the assistance that he needs.
