Did you ever read the book What Color is Your Parachute? That was helpful to me when I was trying to change careers.
Another possibility, if you use sign at home, is to train as a sign language interpreter. (I don't know if your son's school uses them or is into lip reading or what.) The reason I mention it is, we hire 'terps at my synagogue and I know how few there are in my metropolitan area. The demand is great and you could always be in work, and on your own schedule. I went to a public high school with a mainstreamed Deaf class in it, and we had interpreters working at our school, who worked for the school system. You could work during school hours only and get school system benefits.
Of course I could be barking up the wrong tree here. I think there are a lot of just plain jobs, like in retail, that you can work part time during school hours. It depends on what you want to do.
