Here’s a few questions from a reader of A Full Life With Autism. Anyone wish to answer or comment? Please do so in comment section below.
I have just begun reading your new book, A Full Life with Autism and am really appreciating all of the information that you have given.
My daughter is 19 years old and has Asperger’s syndrome.
We live in Eugene Oregon.
She is in a program that teaches living skills and work experience which has been excellent thus far.
She has only 1 more year after this one.
From what I was told, in Oregon, high school goes until 21.
She graduated from regular high school at 19 and this is the post education program.
You mentioned in your book that there are some states that offer educational services beyond 21.
Is there anyway that I can contest what the law has in effect for her in Oregon?
I feel that it would be so helpful if she could have at least one more year beyond next year before she heads into employment and life in general.
Also, I was wondering what states do provide services that go beyond 21?
Thank you and much appreciation for writing a book such as this for us parents and our children.
