    He has gone back to school to improve his high school grades, and we are trying to search out a meaningful career path that he can study for.
    Has anyone here clicked on a job path that they could suggest for examination.

  2. Have you accompanied him to your local county Workforce Investment Act (WIA) office yet?

I wonder if there is some sort of front desk work he could do in a hotel or recreation center, for instance, that requires little computer work, but in which the computer would help build dexterity and perhaps some visual-spatial abilities. We used computers with head-trauma patients in this way.

  3. Hi thanks for the advice. We live in BC Canada and are in the wait line for Gov. funded help.

    • Oh gee, sorry about that, not realizing you are in Canada! BC may have better resources than USA for this issue and I hope your waiting period is not very long. Is your son working now and what type of jobs has he worked in the past? I can try to help think of solutions.
