I have a 7 year old son who struggles with ADHD and Aspergers Autism. It was always just him and I. Then when he was 5 I became pregnant. Now his little sister is almost 2 years old and he is more distant because he feels that the baby is taking all my time away from him. I am a single parent and it is very hard to distribute and even amount of attention to them both. She is always at my feet or needing my attention. I feel terrible and try as much as possible to include him with everything but this isn't enough. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It is very common for your son to get your attention. Maybe you need to tell your son he was your best boy and best helper. Try to give him more attention and let him help you do some house work such as make a cake, sweep the floor, put the cloth in the washing machine. Help you feed his little sister. Try to help his sister get the dress. Give him a lot of praise when he did the right thing. Don't scold him if he did something wrong. It is very important for him to think he is very useful and special. Mum's encouragement and confirm is what he needed. Always tell him that his sister loves him. Let her clap hand for him when he did the wonderful work. At least you need to give him 50% attention. Children are all the same in the family no matter what happens.
