What options does my son have? SSI... something else?

My son graduated HS 2 yrs ago.  He has ADHD with a delayed processing disorder.  He was recently tested to confirm all this and to see if there were any other problems.  They said he might also have some form of dyslexia but they have not tested.  All this was recently done at a vocational center.  He has been trying to get work but has only had 3 interviews and no job still.  My son was also diagnosed with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis.  It's a genetic condition that causes cancer in the colon.  He had a colectomy last May and will have lifelong testing to detect and treat cancer in other areas if he continues to grow more polyps elsewhere.  Right now my son is medically covered by his SD (my husband) until he turns 26.  However, we would love to see my son working or getting some help to get his own place.  How can we find out if he can get some assistance to do that he can have an independent lifestyle?
