Hi OP. I'm afraid I don't have any advice but we're going through a similar thing with DS (5). He has an ASC. I work at weekends and my brother comes to look after my son. My DS loves his uncle and every week keeps asking when he's coming, says how much he loves him etc.
As it's Fathers' Day this weekend, I'm not working and we've got a fun trip planned.
I told DS, expecting him to be happy and excited. Instead he had a meltdown about not being able to play with his uncle, saying he didn't want to come.
I got really upset. Now I've had time to think about it, I think it's partly because when my brother comes to play with DS, he lets him do whatever he wants. There's no boring tidying up, school reading etc. And also for my DS it's the change of his weekend routine he's struggling with.
Not sure if any of this applies to your situation but you're not alone .
