I'm very sorry for your problems.  First, you can patch one eye if you have to, in order to stop the double vision.  Second, you should see a pediatric ophthalmologist to determine the amount of misalignment, the cause, and possible treatments.  It is possible that prism glasses could help but I  can't be sure without knowing more measurments.  If problem is due to a paralysis or palsy of one particular extraocular muscle, then the misalignment could be too great to treat with prism.  This is a complex case and deserves a lot of attention.  Good Luck.  If you need help finding a qualified ophthalmologist - let me know where you are and I can help find someone.
