Our 7 year old son was diagnosed last month with Asperger's. We told my in-laws about his diagnosis and they were going to "Google" it to see what they could find. Well obviously not much because they aren't treating him any different. DH's family went to a restaurant where we had to stand in line for an hour and all four of our boys were going crazy, but especially the 7 year old. They were grabbing him by the arm, yelling at him, talking in a mean tone, forcing him to stand and sit by them, etc. It was all I could do to not cry. DH won't say anything to them and I am a big weenie. They won't read a book if I buy one on Asperger's, so does anyone know of either any great websites for grandparents or something I could e-mail to them? I want them to understand and learn they have to treat and discipline him differently, and that Asperger's IS REAL.
