She needs to get him in to see a Developmental Therapist or a Behavioral Therapist. They would be the best experts to help her come up with a plan to deal with his behaviors. Our Developmental Therapist helps us tremendously with our son who has Asperger's.

There may be a free  therapy  program through the university nearest her. That's where I take my two kids. It's run through the Psychology department.

First off she needs to stop yelling at him, that will only make it worse. She needs to get him into someone, if she needs to she can get a referral from her doctor. My daugher has autism, and she has many different services in place.

Quoting Tinker_Jo:

Play therapy is great! 

I think it is good too, but not for all kids. Some kids with autism dont respond well to play therapy. ( like my daughter) so they recommended more things like social skills groups.
