Teaching children with autism art...i am looking for advice

o.k. my fellow bloggers.... I am teaching my usual k-5 classes art, but this year I am teaching 2 autistic classes as well. This is totally new to me. The two classes are broken into a primary k-2 class and a intermediate 3-5 class. There are 6 children in each class, and 3 aids say in the room and assist the children.
I am questioning what is expected of me? What is expected of them? How do I create lessons for them? What is appropriate for their varying abilities? Can anyone out there help?? Or send me some good sites to read about ideas and information??
