Re: Asperger Child and College Anyone?

I don't think my sister would mind that I reply to your post. Her son has Aspergers. She is divorced (they divorced after their son graduated high school). He did go on to college - I think he ended up changing twice (so he attended three different colleges). He actually ended up finishing his Bachelors online. He works for a large company in DC and just recently got his own place. It has been a long haul, and there are still bumps in the road. I don't know if this helps or not, but it sounds like they have gone through many of the same challenges as you have through the school years. Just know that it is possible for someone with Aspergers to finish college and get their own place.

Best of luck to you all.
