When your special needs child turns 18

      No Comments on When your special needs child turns 18


I just got a letter from Social Security in regards to Gavin. He and I have an appointment with social security on January 25th in regards to Gavin becoming an adult.

Part of Gavin turning eighteen means that things like this are going to come up. We’re currently working on permanent guardianship, which will continue to allow us to manage Gavin’s life when he can’t do so for himself.

Gavin’s nervous about going because he’s never had to go to one of these before and he’s concerned about shots. I’m not sure where that came from but in his head, he think the social security worker will want to give him a shot.

This appointment will be the first that we have to attend in order to keep Gavin’s affairs in order how that he will soon be an adult.
