    I work with children who are autistic. He probably needs a visual schedule of the classroom to follow. If he knows what to expect in his day, his behavior may improve some. His time needs to planned for at all time. Kids who are autistic do not do well with free time. If everyone else is doing reading, have something ready for him to do. Set up a basket work system. He must complete the task in the basket before he can do something else. If you have a speech pathologist at your school, see if they can come to your class and observe. They are a great resource. Good luck. Oh and about the overwhelmed thing. I'm with you. I think we all feel this way, especially when things happen to us. Do some positive things for you--eat right, sleep enough, pamper yourself an hour or two a week, get a massage. You can't and shouldn't bring it all home every night. Once you are bit more rested and feel in control, you will be able to handle all the classroom stuff.
