I think after school care will increase your stress.  Now it is just school ringing, but potentially it will be both school and after school care ringing!  At school they often have options of teachers aides or support staff if your child needs extra support or some time out of he classroom.  But after school care generally do not have these options.  My ADHD kid only goes one day and we have not had any big issues.  But as they regularly send out info around behaviour management policy, I stress about what I would do if he was asked to leave after school care.  I also find it hard to work even part time when I know things are not right with my kid at school.

With your DH, there are many reasons why he might not be on board.  I believe with Autism there is some links to it being hereditary, is it possible that your DH may also have some characteristics, which may be part of the reason he is responding how he is?

Spot on. He has spent his life unable to relate to social situations, and alienating people due to his black and white views. When our eldest DS was diagnosed with ASD we were astounded at how ASD signs aligned with DH's behaviour. However, at this point any diagnosis for him would be irrelevant and I'm always a bit wary of people who self-diagnose themselves with ASD. Drives me crazy.

That is certainly part of it. I think with the ODD side of things DH thinks that well, he got through it so it's not insurmountable and doesn't require intensive intervention. What he doesn't realise is that ODD goes far beyond what he has experienced.

PPs offer good advice. One thing I thought of -

I've worked with the company before and worked on numerous times with the person who would be my Manager. It's almost certain I will get this job. I know this Manager to be inflexible.

If they DO offer the job, that is the time to negotiate flexibility in writing. As in, you want me and offered it so I must be your best option. I only want 4 days over 5 days and I will be leaving at 3pm every day etc.

If they wont do it, I cannot see your situation improving with the demands placed on you from all quarters.
