Autistic teen going to college after being told he'd never leave home

We've heard the diagnosis before. Some parents are told to be expected to take care of their children for the rest of their lives when they are diagnosed with autism. We all know that's not always the case.

One mother was told that by doctors when her son was diagnosed at two years old. Rayvon Parker's mother was told he would be totally dependent on her.  That is until he started speaking at age six, then started playing football, then walked across that stage and graduated from high school. Now he is heading to college.

On the Factor to talk about this is Rayvon Parker and his mother Kristi Parker.
