Is anyone raising a child with Williams syndrome?

Hi and welcome. Sorry to hear that you cna't fing financial aid. I don't have any answers, but I would suggest going to the school, and speaking with the registrar's office to see if they can point you in a good direction. I have to believe there is something out there for people going to school with learning/medical disabilities. good luck, and keep us posted on what you find. HUGS

I am raising my brother, who has Williams syndrome. He is 22 and I recently sent him to college. It is only a certificate program and not a degree program, so I cannot get any federal financial aid for him... leaving the burden of his tuition on me; anyone have any ideas?
