    Hi @Rainbowwarrior637 welcome to the community. I can only sympathies with you. I'm sorry, it must be so difficult for you. Can I ask why won't he get diagnosed?
    Have you tried asking advice in particular categories? There is a parent/carers section where you may find others experiencing the same as you and an Asperger's catagory, click on this link and chose your topic
