Could your dh contact his old job and see if they will take him back, worth an ask? That would solve the problem.

Do you have support with your two SN children? What support would help? A friend of mine has a dc with down's and through pushing gets one weekend a month respite care - you could ask for an assessment by children's social care for more support if you think it would help.

If you have a child younger than 5 you can ask your HV for advice.

If you think your dh is autistic as well ( they do not diagnose asperger's anymore it is autism now and being on the spectrum) you could ask him you ask his gp for an adult assessment for diagnosis. This can take a long time as waiting lists are long in many areas and it can be hard to get a diagnosis as an adult. Would a diagnosis help?

You can certainly ask for another assessment, it is all about saying the right things and pushing more and more. Would their school support you? Are there any charities for children with SN in your area that run activities that might give you some breathing space? Can you let them know about your own poor health and needing support for you as well?

Can you see the gp about your own physical health and ensure that as much as possible is done to help you?

Shame about the job not being available - hope he finds another more suitable one to apply to.
