I don't know how to help this kid

2021.12.03 01:03 excelise I don't know how to help this kid

I've been working with a kid for over three months now, once a week 45 minute sessions. This is determined by the state so I can't up his minutes or anything like that. I'm also a very new therapist and, full disclosure, not an SLP. I'm a developmental therapist, which is essentially the same thing without the masters degree/medical side/swallowing aspect of it. You could call me a play therapist with a specialty in communication.
Anyway, this kid turns two in a few weeks and his needs are severe. He does not talk or show much interest in anything outside of eating and watching the wheels on toy cars spin around as he wheels them back and forth. He got his ASD diagnosis a few weeks ago. An SLP is working with him as well, but with both of us targeting his language, he still hasn't made any visible progress that I have seen. I think part of the problem with me and part of the problem is with the family.
The family side: his parents are not very involved in his life. His grandmother fills the role a single mother typically would, and she holds it together very well for her situation but it's not at all ideal for this kid. Grandma works night shift, so she and the kid sleep all day (except for therapy) and he spends nights at his great-grandmother's house. I'm essentially seeing this kid in the middle of the night. I have offered to do later evening sessions but she said that wouldn't work. The kid is asleep or his grandma had just woken him up pretty often when I get there. It's basically the middle of the night for this kid. And the SLP sees him on the same day, so he's extra tired and cranky from that too. I try to focus on working with grandma on things she could do with him but she seems to have no interest or says "we already do that."
He also basically has no routine from what the grandmother says. I know routine is extra important for kids with autism--could this be affecting his social or language development as well? The grandmother doesn't allow him to "throw fits." Basically if he starts to cry she will shut it down. I know from personal experience that crocodile tears are very real, but I don't feel like this can be healthy. I also suspect there is very little carry over from what grandma says. I ask her how this homework or that homework has been going and she just says "fine. we've been doing it every day."
My side: I have very little experience with kids this young in general, especially kids with autism. And the grandma intimidates me, and the kid intimidates me, and I walk in and leave his session every day feeling so anxious. Like I'm bad at my job. The grandma doesn't trust me. And I wouldn't trust me either! It's obvious I have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to this kid. I'm not helping him. I don't know how to suggest to her that he needs a routine and he needs to not sleep all day and be up all night. It seems like with her work schedule and the kid's parents being how they are, there's no other option.
I also don't know how to get his attention. It's like I'm either bothering him or I'm not there. I've tried parallel play and he doesn't let me get close enough to where it would even make a difference. He does not like acknowledging my existence. If I try to push the session away from food or cars, he starts to cry, so I back off because I don't want to upset him on top of everything else. I watched the Laura Mize autism podcast series up through the one about teaching social games, but how do I even go about that when nothing I do interests him and there's little carryover with grandma?
Can I take a kid like this off my caseload? I'm honestly surprised the grandma hasn't requested to stop services yet. It feels unethical to continue to "treat" him when I'm not helping. I do early start, so I think he's legally entitled to services but I'm at my wit's end here. For context I do pretty well with most of my other kids.

2021.12.03 01:03 TheShangWang Is it generally ok to use the computer in dim lighting?

I've always used my laptop in a lit room because I was trying to avoid "damaging" my eyes, but in reality doing this just causes more eye strain and fatigue easily overtime which can cause headaches at most.
If you turn down the brightness and only do this for periods of an hour, take breaks, and turn on the light once in a while would there be no real consequence or additional eye strain that would be worse than if you just used the computer in a lit room?

2021.12.03 01:03 Reddity65 What’s the difference between the old video player and the new video player?

My old iPad Air 1 has some very choppy playback on the Plex app unless I’m using the “old video player” under the in app advanced settings.
I know that the issue lies on the iPad, not on the server, as everything is direct played, and there is sufficient video buffered when the iPad stutters. When using the old video player, I’ve noticed a lot more transcoding, but other than that, is there anything else different?

2021.12.03 01:03 Mushlaam WTH?!? It was my birthday gifts!

Today is my birthday. I have waited all day to get a "Happy Birthday sweetheart" or whatever from my S.O. However...I got something else:
He asks me where I got these two gift cards I had sitting on the top of my purse. Still waiting to see if I got a Happy Birthday or not, I told him that I had gotten them for some Xmas gifts.
He then proceeded to give me a 15-minute lecture on the irresponsibility of purchasing these without his knowledge and then TOOK them from me. He took every cent of my birthday. The birthday he forgot. The birthday that I have spent with someone who didn't even care enough to remember it.
Somehow, I have ruined HIS day.
If he hadn't taken those, I swear I would be using them right now to walk out the door and tell him to f*ck off.

2021.12.03 01:03 anakaleflax I've fallen in love with Haruki Murakami's work

I have never been so captivated by a writers literary prose before. Somehow, it manages to be both beautiful writing and accessible to readers of all skill levels. That is a quite impressive feat.
I've read through Kafka on the Shore, Norweigan Wood, and am working on The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle right now. I'd like to eventually read his entire body of work.
I'm so happy to have fallen in love with reading again and just had to share it with someone.

2021.12.03 01:03 CaptainButtFlex What are some of your predictions for unexpected Cypto use cases in the future.

When the internet first came out, the masses were investing in the obvious use cases that they could relate from pre internet days such as e books and e mail. While there was some success the biggest winners in early investments were the people who looked for unexpected applications of the internet such as shopping online and even streaming. These concepts made no sense at the time, but are everything in hindsight.
Now I am trying to think about the crypto space this way.
If you would have predicted NFTs in 2017 when the only focus was currency you'd be the richest man of 2020. If you would have predicted metaverse in 2020 you would be the richest man of 2021.
What are your predictions of what's next?
