My Child is Having Social Issues at School

I am a divorced father raising a 3 /12 year old fifty percent of the time with my Ex.  Our child attends a very good school everyday.  Today, his teacher called and informed me that he was being very annoying to the other children by being too "needy" and "clingy."  He follows other childen around and practically begs them to play with him.  On several occasion my son has told me that "the other children don't want to be his friend," and this is very hurtful to him.  I am sure that this problem stems from some seperation anxiety, but I am desperate to find ways to help him overcome it.
