"Will she be able to get and keep a job?" "Will he be successful at living on is own?" These are some of the questions and concerns that haunt parents of children with learning disabilities (LD) once they leave school and enter adulthood. Drawing from personal experience and her work as an activist on behalf of individuals with LD, Anne Ford will provide insights about the frustration, confusion and heartache that are shared by so many families as their children strive to become increasingly self-sufficient and independent. Join Ms. Ford as she addresses questions about social skills and dating, sibling relationships, job hunting and interactions with employers and co-workers, finding colleges and training programs, and more.
