Are you overwhelmed with the idea of having your young adult go to college and feel successful?

Would it be helpful if someone supported you with the job search?
If you find yourself answering, "Yes!" to any of these questions, McDermott Autism Services can help you.
"My son is a graduate of NYU. He is a high functioning autism spectrum young adult. With lots of social challenges, he was still able to graduate in four years with Katie's dedication. She helped him navigate the ins and outs that can make or break the college experience. Coming from an IEP to living in a dorm on his own in NYC, he needed someone to help with self-advocacy but also needed the independence of a young adult. Katie is his number one cheerleader with the patience of a saint. She is still on his team helping him navigate looking for employment during the pandemic as a recent graduate. I don't know what we would do without Katie. What else can I say, she's like family, she's the best! "
