I would also like to know if my sons disorder can help my husband come to the us quicker and make the immigration process faster its really hard doing everything withought him and i need him by myside now that i found out my son is like this.
There are too many forms, with too many variables ... to give you an 'exact' list.
You start with an I-130 & 2 G-325 forms ... plus documents.
Read the instructions closely, or hire an attorney ... which would be a very wise thing to do.
I am sorry about your son ... but it will make no difference in speeding up the process.

If you try this process without a lawyer, I recommend this book. It is written for normal people and not lawyers and is very reasonably priced.
I agree with my colleagues. There are too many forms that need to be filed at various stages of the process to list here. But as stated earlier, file the I130 and a G325A for each of you. Good luck to you.

A lawyer will help speed this up. Doing this on your own can slow it down if you do not know each working part between USCIS, The NVC and consulate. There are many nonprofits that help for free or low cost. Find a nonprofit attorney.
