Is your son is a special ed classroom?   I am a sped teacher so I was just going to suggest that you meet with his teacher, start there.  Hopefully he has a teacher that is approachable and helpful.  

I can say that if it were me, Id look for a classroom that is specifically for kids with autism or aspergers.   Aspergers is a form of autism.   Students I have had who have aspergers usually are not too far below in their academics and several are above grade level.   I had an 8th grade boy who tested at college level in reading and high school level in math.

If he is doing fine is school then that is great.  But if he begins to have problems I would look for a special classroom that specializes in aspergers/autism.
