When I told my family my son was diagnosed with Autism no one seemed to understand what that meant. I explained his sensory issues and developmental delays and they all keep saying, "don't worry he will grow out of it." My parents keep telling me that doctors give a faulty diagnosis so they can get more money out of your insurance. I have no clue how to explain that Autism isn't just going to go away on its own and he need the speech, occupation and ABA therapy. I tried to get them to read the report from the doctor but they refused. Should I just give up trying to get through to them. It would be nice to have their support in this but they are very closed-minded.
