As my kids get older -- they'll be 16 and 19 this year -- I find myself worrying less about finding the cure or treatment that will solve all their problems, and more about how they'll make their way in the world as adults. Today's peek into the Today's News and Views folder looks at three blog posts from folks who are worrying right along with me.
- Disability News has an item on the high unemployment among adults with disabilities, made worse by an ailing economy and budget cutbacks.
- On Autism: Change.org, Kristina Chew writes about how the focus on autism as a scourge to be feared keeps us from making meaningful plans for children's futures.
- A post on the blog Shanan Trail looks at how "adults with atypical neurological development, developmental disabilities and mental illness are marginalized" and abandoned once they're no longer under a school district's budget.
