dropping out of Priority 1 at age 27

It does not make any sense that when adults reach the age of 27, they lose "points" on the wait list and they most likely will lose Priority 1. These individuals do NOT have fewer needs as they age (and their parents/caregivers age). They will have more needs. My son has been on the "Urgent Wait List"- then the "Priority 1 Wait List" for years. The state of Virginia has failed him. Just because he did not receive the waiver by the "magic age" of 27, his chance of receiving it now are practically non-existant. This is so unjust and illogical. I would love to know who thought this up. Of course people exiting the public school system need the waiver support to move into adult activities, but if one does not get the waiver by age 27- the need does not disappear. It gets greater.
