I have a 4 yr old and we just got the final diagnouses that he is autistic on dec 2. Not only are we trying to cope with it but the family isnt helping. How do I get the rest of they family to understand. Like the grandmas and aunts? My family sometimes treats him like he is mentaly retarded. But hes not. Or my fav. coment is dont you have control over your son. Please help I dont know how much more of this I can take I keep telling them hes autistic and its not working.
