Autism and Conner

Autism and Transitioning into Adulthood

My son is 20 years old and he has Autism. There are no available resources in this area and I was not surprised by learning that Tennessee was listed as one of the worst States for families with Autism. Can anyone guide me on how to spread the word. He is getting ready to attend a community college and I am excited for him but I am also afraid that he won’t be able to excel like the other students his age. He graduated in 2014 from a public school that had limited resources, but they could have done better. I called one of the local advocates for help, but by the time she got involved he was going onto his Senior year and it was too late. I don’t want to make the same mistake and I’m asking for advice,information,ideas!
