A big part of high school is planning for your teen's life after he graduates. Many students with dyslexia go on to college, often attending prestigious national universities. Some choose to attend their state colleges, or to begin by attending community college or a private two-year junior college. Other students will defer college entrance by a year or more, perhaps exploring volunteer or travel opportunities. Some may join the military, and others may choose to attend a trade school or look for employment immediately. Your child's choices should be governed primarily by his interests and level of motivation. Even if his academic performance in high school has been poor or uneven, a college education is not impossible; but if your child prefers to avoid school, he may do better with options that will lead directly to development of work experience and a career.
