Hi, and thanks in advance for any help. My son is really doing well in eighth grade. He does get some help and spends some time in a CD (cognitive disorder) class, but is mostly on his own. In fact, he's done so well that, when we plan for high school, we would LIKE to change his CD status to Learning Disability (LD) (it has been suggested) and gear him towards going to our two year tech school out there (in Wisconsin we have tech schools rather than two year Junior Colleges). He could get Special Education at the tech school too. If we switch his status, will he still be able to get help as an adult? He may need it, even if he get a two year degree. He still has lifeskill deficits, but they are getting better. I don't want to take away his possible help though. If he needs it, I'll feel terrible if they say he's "too high functioning" to get it. He is Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified. The other option we have is to put him into a life skill program and keep him as CD, gearing him towards a work/school program. He'd have no trouble getting help as an adult then. I don't want to make it hard for us to get him help. Any feedback? We just went to his High School Orientation and, frankly, I was SCARED...lol. Son has asked, "Will I still get help?"
