  • If your son has Autism, do it like this, tell dad that you feel it would work for both boys if you parent them more the same way as a start. Does Dad not like "labels"?

  • How old is the child? You could learn some techniques that help children with aspergers and teach it to him or use it with him.

  • Let him know his son is going to have problems in life if he doesn't get the help he needs. How old is your DSS? If he is in school you can get his teacher to help you.

  • I don't see there is much you can do, being in that situation. Keep talking about it until finally someone listens!

  • Find out what his teacher thinks about it and then talk to your husband about what the teacher thinks.

  • Ask if you can go with him to his next pedi appt (you know, in case you want to 'find a new one' or something) and bring it up to the dr.
