38. Transitioning to Postsecondary Life Part 1 with Joseph Shipman

By Brigitte Shipman

Mother's Guide Episode 17

In this week's episode, my son Joseph and I candidly talk about the life after postsecondary education.

Joseph who is a 28-year old living with autism shares his experience of going through a period of trial and error trying to figure out what he wanted to do with his life.

He talks about being put on academic probation at a community college from failing classes he was not interested in, having a 6-month period of doing "nothing", and having a sense of not even knowing what the problem was.

Joseph and I both look back at this period in his life and offer mother's and son's perspectives about the process of transitioning into adulthood.

Enjoy this episode!
