Gzip, everything you stated is dead on! My ex-husband is an Aspie and is in complete denial that he is such. My 7 year old son has been diagnosed as having mild autism and his father refuses to accept that. In fact, he goes above and beyond to prove it wrong which only hurts my son. He is denying him of any therapy where he could learn coping mechanisms and help in any other areas that he is affected. We have joint custody so both have to agree on treatment, etc. for him. With him being in denial it leaves me unable to get the help that my son would greatly benefit from. Does anyone have any case studies or answers to help me in addressing the court to see that the father is only hindering the development of the son in his own arrogance of "not wanting to label him"?
