Ok, my son is 18. But he doesn't have a driver's license because he can't drive. He doesn't have a state ID for he resides in residential care in another state. I know he won't be gambling or drinking. But I don't know if he'll ever be carded for whatever. I know they ask for ID at airport, but I tell them he's my son and he has none. Should I really worry about that when we won't be gambling or drinking. At least he won't. Thanks in advance my fellow TAs.

Does he have a picture ID for the Residential Care Facility? (like a Student ID?)

I would be more leary about them asking for ID at the airport. You should probably get him a passport just to be safe.

No he doesn't, Topeka. They don't need them up there. We don't plan on bars or anything. I'm just not sure. No kids there have them. He has Aspergers, high functioning autism that is. In a few months, he will be coming back to our home state of RI. In the meantime, he resides in MA.

I was just thinking that the state he lives in maybe has a non-driver ID if someone can take him to get his pic taken.

Good idea Jacktar with the Passport :)

It's tough for them to bring him anywhere for he is still in school there at the home. I can only see him on the weekends.

Well, I'll get a passport then. It's the only way then. I thought it he's with me, I'm his mom with my ID. Oh well, thanks everyone. To spend that money on a passport just to travel in the same country is a pain in the tush. Yes, I'm complaining so I'll shut up now. It's just a tough situation.

Well, if I'm understanding your question, as far as in the casinos and bars, when they are carding in Vegas it's usually to make sure you're 21, so it wouldn't seem to matter in that case, since he is not. They would probably just ask him to leave/move on.

A former employee's son also has Aspergers, so I think that passport is a great ID idea for him :)

Many States have a State I.D.-w.photo,non-driving.

I would check into that first.
