My son Tim was born 1 lb and 15 oz twenty-five years ago, he had various problems because of his prematurity. One problem that he has is perception! Tim was and still is perceptively impaired. When Tim turned 21yrs old he became totally blind. He went to a Blind school in KY but because of his perception problem he could never master braille or aquire a seeing eye dog. He tried to live in a apartment by himself,but that did not work out for him (he was held up at knife point once & robbed 2 other times) so he now lives with me in NC. My problem is he has nothing to do all day long and is very frustrated and bored. We tried to have him volunteer at a kennel around the corner where we live , but they don't seem open to it because of the liability!! all he wanted to do was play with their dogs and maybe brush them. I do not know what to do for him? We have never found another person that could relate to his disabilities. Tim has never had a real friend, drove a car or dated a girl. He wants a job so bad. I wish I had a lot of money, so that I could buy a business and cut out a little job for him so that he could feel useful....we have wrote to Dr Phil 3x but no answer. Can anybody help????
