How can I help my autistic son get ready for 4K?

My sons IEP has him starting 4K this year even though he just turned 3. Because of his Autism they want him a year early for 1/2 days 2 days a week just to get used to the idea of school.....

I'm worried he won't listen to his teacher. I'm worried other kids will make fun of him or ignore him. I'm worried he will be too much for the teacher to handle. I'm worried he will cry all day... Any suggestions would be great!

We have been concentrating on his speech (he is nonverbal) and getting him to follow directions. I know it takes time but sometimes it feels like we aren't getting anywhere :/ ..any suggestions, please :)
