I do not know where you live, however many areas have agencies that work with physicalkly and mentally diasbled (we have the ARC and Arnold center locally) who offer services such as finding employment. they work with many area businesses who employ their clients and parovide fair and adequate working opportunities for them.

Talk to your workability teacher (if you have one) at your school. Otherwise try the special ed teacher. There are programs for kids with special need where they work with local businesses to let these kids train with them while the program pays them for the work a win win for the business and the kids. I applod your son for being fearless and going out there to try and work great job mom for giving him the confidence!!!! Whatever you do don't discurage him he has the right to work like any other kid does!! You might even check out any special kids camps to see if they have some positions available for him. Best of luck!!

That's what my oldest does. He also brings the trash to the curb on garbage days for them.

How much of a developmental (physical and mental) delay does he have? It will make a difference. They have Hope DAC in our community, and we're in a really rural area so I'm certain there are other places for people to go to work. It's meant for special needs individuals and the work is monitored and based on their development. If he's not very delayed, perhaps check into helping neighbors with pets or the like.
