Graduation and an Uncertain Future
ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- In the next 15 years, an estimated 500,000 autistic children will cross a major hurdle and graduate out of school systems in the U.S.
Sadly, this won’t bring the gold medal reward most parents of autistic children hope for. Instead, the accomplishment will bring these families to the start of a new obstacle course that may prove more challenging than the one they just worked their way through.
