If you don't have an education or experience in dealing with this my best advice is that you need help from professionals. Please don't attempt to this all on your own for your son's sake. Please do some research to look for programs that can help you help your son.

You might ask this question on the Happy Homeschoolers or Secular Homeschoolers group here on CM. There are many people who homeschool their autistic children because one-on-one attention from a loving adult works quite well. Many schools are not equipped to give the attention and care needed, especially with the budget cuts many schools are experiencing.
You may also see what books you can find on Amazon. I think I've seen a couple of books on homeschooling autistic children, but can't remember much about them.
Good luck and take care.
