We meet a woman whose son struggles to read anything short of email.
What Colledge For My 18 Year Old Gradulate To Do Online He Has A Learning Disability
“What do you do online to make a living?”
If you’re 18 you’re a grown up. You’re able to access the Internet and the world, but if you’re doing it online (most students are) you’re probably looking for jobs.
“I’m figuring out a portfolio of my work.”
With so many options out there for finding your way through college or university, it’s easy to get swept up in the daily demands of day-to-day life and end up running off into your dreams.
This is not a cliché. This is true of everyone. Everyone has a life outside of the classroom and I have a son who is 18 years old and just starting college as a freshman at Purdue University.
College should be about learning. We all want to learn, but with student loan debt reaching nearly $1 trillion dollars and tuition becoming more and more expensive, it’s time to put our studies into some real action.
Colledge For My 18 Year Old Graduate Who Has A Learning Disability
My oldest son has a learning disability and I worry about what this will mean when it comes to setting a college career. College is what he’s always wanted to do, but the process of finding a job is not going to be easy.
How do I guide him to get into a career that he’s passionate about and one that will allow him to pursue his passions and love?
I worry about how I’m going to prepare him when it comes to job searches and interviewing techniques, but I didn’t tell him the real reason I’m concerned. I want him to get into a career that will help him with his disability.
When it comes to educating my son, I always stress the value of giving back. In his case it would mean giving back in some capacity to someone else to help them accomplish their dreams. This will be hard for my son to grasp at first, but learning from my experience and the countless examples I’ve seen of other people with learning disabilities doing just that is a good way to start.
In most college dorm rooms there are 3 things in common: computers, phones, and TVs. I don’t have a big TV in my dorm, but I do have a TV monitor. I have a 3D television that is purpose built for teaching, and that has great 3D capabilities. Some colleges give you the ability to purchase your own 3D TV, but for most universities 3D television is a perk.
It goes back to the point I made before. Give back.
I’ve worked in IT for 18 years, and at my current job, I’m in charge of the company’s internal security. We receive and monitor data right from any of our machines.
I’ve learned everything I know from lots of reading and from talking to a wide variety of people.
I’ve helped start TechSecurity and I’ve spent years helping others with tech problems. I’ve worked at places like Amazon and Google and I’ve helped others with their security as well.
I wanted to make that connection with my oldest son. College isn’t just for learning. What are your dreams? What do you really want out of life? What do you really want to give back?
Giving back is very important to me. I want my son to feel like he has something to give and that he can be a part of something bigger than himself. I know I can help him reach his goals and my work is the connection I’m giving to him.
My son also has an essay that will be due in two weeks. This one is a little different because it goes hand in hand with all the information I’ve put together with my career ideas.
If we learn from each other and if we find the connections we need to start a career, we can help make a better world and make a world without problems.
It won’t be easy, but if I had to do it all over again, I would definitely do it again.
