I am really worried about messing this up and hope that someone with a kid similar to mine has some input: My son has one year of high school left. He has Aspergers and Anxiety and is social-emotionally a lot younger than his peer. He could never work in anything requiring good social skills and group work is a real challenge. He has no friends. He has compensated for his social challenges by thinking he is smarter than anyone and he is not shy to tell people that he thinks he is superior (charming , I know). But (good news) he has been doing well in school. He gets As and Bs and has taking AP classes. His ACT came back at 31 (31 is composite score, STEM part is 34) So he needs to go to college. His IEP team qualified him for transition services until he is 21 to work on life skills and he could take some classes at the community college through the transition program. We do not have college savings (still paying off on our degrees as it is) but he might qualify for some college scholarship money based on ACT/grades. If he goes to college right out of high school, do we risk him falling apart because of his anxiety and lack of social skills? If he goes to a transition program until he is 21, will he loose out on opportunities for college? Where does one go for advice for a twice exceptional child who might be gifted in one area but struggles in another?
