Help Please. What changes when you have a young adult who is 18 ??

I am helping support my brothers and son with significant special needs who is 18 years old in May.

He will then change from going to school to college. I just wondered when young adults turn 18 are there any differences in any aspects of their daily life for instance in terms of support, respite, financial etc or any other areas where change may occur?

Is there anythings we need to get arranged or prepare for or to contact?

Also with regard to college is this usually full-time and how long in terms of years does this last. What happens then?

I am sure we will get answers from the relevant authorities when we meet them but just wondered what peoples experiences and views are on here.

Many thanks for any advice, support or help in advance.
