I had to laugh at your description of your in-laws! I have found that humor even in this situation does help. Thanks! I truly do not even know how to deal with mine at this point. My father-in-law still fails to see any problem with my son whatsoever and my dh and I feel that he thinks we just "need" a crisis in our lives to thrive. Yeah, right! I just wish for a little more sensitivity and I do appreciate your sharing your views on dealing with family. We are working on getting a diagnosis for Patrick. I have a strong feeling that he is going to be diagnosed with PDD-NOS or Asperger's. He has many of the characteristics of mild autism. Our appointment is Sept.10 at Jersey shore university medical center. I have heard about the place in Mountainside that you mentioned as well. I think we'll feel better once we have a diagnosis. At least we can then have something concrete to tell everyone.
