I'm new here. I'm a parent of a 17 yr. old son. I love him dearly. He just graduated High School. I live in Yonkers, N. Y. I love to find out if there's anything a teen, adult with autism can enroll and make a career out if it? I understand parents with children with autism love to know if there's anything out there that will help that person with special needs and make at least some good to himself, herself useful in society. Thankyou.

Welcome to the group.  My kids with ASD are 5, so not there yet.  Good luck!

What are his interests and how high/low functioning on the spectrum is he? Bill gates is on the spectrum and look at him! My son is only 5, so I'm not there yet, but I would suggest something that he is interested in and talk to him about it and the school.

Hi I have a 21 year old. He can not work there are programs for your son. Social services can help. Hospitals it just takes us moms to advocate for our special kids!

 Have you thought about enrolling him in a vocational school?
