Dustin is a senior this year in school. He will attend school until he is 22 years old, but he will receive a certificate of completion this year. He attends a Functional Skills Class that serves moderately mentally handicapped kids. They work on the skills he will need to participate in society as a whole. He can make change, he can tell time, he knows the difference between men's and women's restrooms. He is only reading at a prekindergarten level, but he can decipher a basic grocery list. It is a program that has been successful for him. I am not certain whether he will participate in graduation ceremonies, but I took his senior pictures today.
