Raising children with schizophrenia

Have any of you ever kept with the story about January Schofield? She is one of the youngest children ever to be diagnosed with schizophrenia. She has auditory and visual hallucinations, is aggressive at times and her parents lived apart for a time so that she would not hurt her little brother.

The big issue that parents are finding is that besides counseling and medications, there is not much help in regards to preparing their daughter for adulthood. They also have a son with mental illness, although I haven't kept up on his story so I don't know for sure where they are with that.
