Great Article from the Commercial Appeal

There was a great article in yesterday's Commercial Appeal about the challenges high school students with disabilities face when they graduate and how new federal laws and increased awareness are helping make that transition easier.

The story focuses on Daniel Fendley, a high school graduate with Asperger's Syndrome headed to Southwest Tennessee Community College. It delves into challenges that he and other incoming freshmen with disabilities face and some of the steps that can be taken to ease the transition into higher learning.

It's definitely worth a read.
