My 15 year old AD is hoping to do a level 3 BTEC course next year at college. She came to live with us at the age of 5 and while she seems to manage well, she can be quite immature and does the least work she thinks can get away with.
I am concerned that when she gets to college (which she thinks will be one big laugh) she will fail her course due lack of structure and supervision.
Do colleges put in extra support for vulnerable young people?
There is nowhere specific to put on the application form that she is adopted, and when I suggested to my daughter she include it, she said she didn't want them feeling sorry for her.
What have other parents done to support their adopted children through college?
