Exploring Possibilities and Guardianship Issues
Continue to discuss interests, wishes and dreams with your child. Continue to encourage community involvement and enrollment in High school classes within their capabilities that will allow them to explore new ideas and goals.
Begin considering post school programs that match your child's abilities and goals. Evaluate your child's progress toward daily living goals. How is your child doing? What are their strengths and weaknesses? Is there anything that really stands out?
Continue job sampling or even working if your child has found something that really makes them happy. Many children this age have already found jobs that work well for them. Others will need to keep looking. Continue to evaluate goals and progress, as you begin looking for post school district education programs available in your area.
