But for some, graduation is not full of excitement. For many, particularly those with significant disabilities, stress and depression sets in. The routine and support of the school comes to an end. The time with peers is no longer routine, but forced. There is a lag between school services and those from other government agencies.
It doesn't have to be this way. Communities, employers, and colleges do want all people to be welcomed and valuable members of society. ALL people. Granted it may take more planning and thought and the participation may look different but it is possible. You see, Dr. Seuss wrote his book for everyone. Let's all build a dream together and make his words come true.
