I had the same problem with my son who is now 7.  We did speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, music therapy, and we found social skills groups with like children.  He went to special ed for kindergarten, 1, and part of second.  It took a while but we have a very happy typical seven year old who you would never know had any issues.  He plays on baseball teams, ice skates, plays the piano, sings, rides a bike.  I am lucky and blessed.  The music classes really seemed to make a big difference to him.  before all the therapy he was throwing up down my back and having melt downs everyday.  It is really hard but you will make it.
