Autism college

CBS News Chicago reports that a Chicago Public School student with autism has graduated high school with 18 college acceptance offers and more than $500,000 in scholarships and financial aid.

The article has an interview with the student’s mother, who first spoke with CBS seven years ago when “a transit driver for Chicago Public Schools left [her daughter] on the street without making sure an adult was home.” It goes on to detail how the mother fought to get her daughter her legally mandated services.
