Hello!! Edith!!!! Ohh boy!!!! Listen first need to know how your sister handle your nephew, how she talks to him, share time with him and see how he likes to spent time when he is at home.
Second If she can bring him at school and spent some time with him and gradually leave, and assuring him that he will be okay and that he will doing fun activities and he should surprise her at home with a picture, he might begin to see that he would like to do things for her at school and bring her something every day, but this will take some time.
He doesn’t understand yet why he has to leave home, and his mom etc.
Trying to get comfortable with a stranger and receive new rules is kind of confusing for him.
Let your sister know that she needs to talk to him every day before school, and introduce school is a place to have fun, to play and draw pictures etc. (do this at home) He will be okay and your sister too.
Just take baby steps with him, communication is the KEY. (not yelling) good luck.

He should be seen by a developmental specialist. Did his problems just start when he started school or has he always had some difficulties with listening, sitting still, anger, etc.? There are a number of things that can be causing this type of behavior, autism being one, adhd, depression, etc., so he needs to be evaluated by someone that has experience with child development.

Perhaps family dcounseling would be the best thing. Not just the little boy. It may be just a strong reaction to school, he could be being bullied by other students or the teacher, it could be a psychiatric disorder. A sit down conference with the teacher would be a good idea too.
