    combined with anxiety nephew who went to a couple of the sn schools discussed on this board. It has not been an easy road to say the least, but he graduated from college and -- I just found out this week -- just got a job as a school para (not in NYC). He's got friends, he's living on his own, and just got what seems to be a great job for him. It's been a hard road for him, and it's taken him a bit longer then his nt peers, but I'm really excited to see how far he's come.
