Default Student Visa with autistic dependent?

I am thinking of applying for a student visa to study for a PhD. However I have a 16 year old son who has a diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome. Is this likely to cause a problem with me gaining a student visa?

Thanks Xx

Well, he is still classed as a dependent child so age is not an issue. He will need a visa of his own. As to the Asperger's Syndrome side of things, I cannot help. It will depend on the level of care needed but I seem to recall others have been accepted. Oddly enough I have just searched for both Asperger's and autism and the search only brought up this post, strange

Partners and children of students

If your partner or children want to come to New Zealand with you, they will need to apply for a visitor visa or, if they will also be studying, their own student visa.
Just seen a post at the top of the page-the search function is down until 23rd June-that explains it!!
