I wonder if you could talk to your son's doctor and ask if their office will give your name and number to other moms in the area who also have autistic children. If you haven't already, you can ask about autism support groups.
what about asking local preschools. Have you joined a church? I too have an autistic son and it is very hard to find friends for him

I was new to an area too and sometimes i would reach out a little and expect people to take it upon themselves to invite me to something since I was new. I would encourage you to do the inviting. Call some moms from your sons class and tell them you are inviting several from the class and ask if they will meet you at the park after school. Maybe you can makeit a standing weekly playdate and change locations for winter. B4 you know it you will have spent many hours talking with the moms and will gain friends.
