have already posted in education just re posting here for traffic

Ds1 (4) has been in school for a while (start term after 3rd birthday in wales) and has mild asd. He is very attached to me, having ill health hasn't helped as in & out of hospital a lot).
He has struggled with transition from part time to full time and cries daily in class for either missing me or any fall out with other children.
Some have picked up on this and call him "cry baby". Ive spoken with school and they've said its normal but he works himself up so much each night/morning about school.
Looking for suggestions of how to tackle this please

Does your school offer any social support like nurture groups? My ds is NT but very young in the year and needed support.

Our school has organized playground games for all years as well as a quiet area for children who don't want to run around.

Does the teacher use a visual timetable so he knows what's next ?

yes he is part of a nurture group and uses visual timetables. That's a good idea about quiet area for break times
