First of all the only way a state issued check for you would stop is if your Grammy stopped applying for it. And you are not of any kind of legal adult age, unless you are emancipated. I am actually sure that you can get a job if you apply yourself.
Just let the places you get interviews at know in the interview about your issues, but really you don't have to reveal that information to them. Although you might want them to know about your learning disabilities.
I am sure you could get a job at Amigos, McDonald, Burger King, a restaurant as a dishwasher. Just put your mind to it and stop thinking about the fact that you are 7th grade level. If you want to act like an adult, then put your mind to it. You are only a year away from being an adult in the first place.

There should be some kind of agency near you that can help you find a job.
