not posted in here forever so sorry that its about something like this but really could do with some urgent help
my aspergers son has a daughter who is nearly 2, he is not with her mother but has been having contact with her 3 days a week since she was born.
today out of the blue social sevices turned up and said there is a problem with him seeing his son because of his disability, apparently the mother has suddenly decided she thinks he is a danger and has told these social workers a load of twaddle about how his disability affects him and now they need to assess him and his girlfriend who is also his carer.
apparently she has a problem because she says because he is a goth he dresses his daughter in black all the time and refuses to let her wear pink (he doesnt he doesnt even have any black clothes for her and the only reason he doesnt have pink for her is ALL the clothes her mother has for her are pink)
she has a problem because apparently he always removes her bobbles which he doesnt his daughter tends to pull them out and he doesnt put them back in
she is also saying she has a problem because he doesnt like to go out on his own which he doesnt he does have a problem with crowds of people and things but at the end of the day thats why hs girlfriend is his carer and she is always there.
apparently these are ALL legitamate concerns for him not having contact with his daughter which apart from the going out one i cant really see what the problem is.
the social worker also said to him in her experience people with disabilitys dont generally make good parents!!! can she really say this???
i guess what im asking is how much can the social services use his disablity against him, especially since this one seems to have a pre concived idea of his ability to manage, and what can we do to help his case?
