My name is Christy and I’m a full-time mother to two beautiful children, one who happens to have special needs. I’m also owner and writer for wondermoms.org where I love passing on my knowledge and insights to others in the community. Recently I’ve been pondering what life will be like for my non-verbal 6-year-old son when he turns 18. I’m positive he won’t be able to just go off on his own as he transitions into adulthood.
I thought I’d pass along some additional resources I found. Hopefully, they can help families deal with this scary time in their lives and find it useful.
