Arrow autism & divorce

If any one has advice on dealing with a 5 yr old autisic son whose dad hasn't seen him since he was 2. He hasn't acted like he even remembers him but I worry that he thinks about it and doesn't know what or how to ask about it.

Actually any info/advice from single parents that are dealing with autism on their own would be very helpful!

hi im a divored mother of 3 and i have 1 son whos 8 and is autistic. when i got divorced two years ago their dad moved out of state and honestly didnt know how to deal with my son. now he is remarried and has moved back to florida and my son doesnt really pay him any mind when he comes. the first time he saw him he hit his father and i think that was because his father used to call him retarded and say that he wanted a normal son . my son is very smart and i think he remembers how his father treated him and now when my ex comes to vist my son pretends hes not there. if i can help you at all pls email me

thank you for your story. Matthew's father was never that mean to him, but he was always in denial that there was a problem. I believe that is why he hasn't wanted anything to do with us anymore. Good Luck with yours!

move girl far away...pay 20$ and get a restraing order.. get custody if you don't already have it... make a deal no support if he gives up all rights to the kids.{they useually go for that one{ get married, new husband adopt the kids. until then demand supervized visits put an add in the paper for a free lawyer to help fight fora handicapped child.. I have seen such an ad. you might be surprized. what sucks is what i have read autidim MOSY UFTEN is from the father's side not the mother's these deadbeat dads need a vasectomy. a single mom too, cindy
