There's a lot to learn when you leave high school. Funny isn't it? Many of us think we're finished with learning when we say goodbye to our high school teachers and friends. Actually, though, when we leave school, we start a new type of learning.
It's different for everyone. Some people will be learning about jobs, transportation, and how to handle their money. Some will be learning to live with new roommates in an apartment or finding supports to help them contribute to their communities. Others might be attending job training programs or taking courses at the local community college or university.
You and your family may have questions about benefits, state IDs or learners permits and drivers training, guardianship or supported decision-making, and health care coverage. See? There really is a lot to learn!
