Sleep problems

We have a 4 year old boy who has recently been diagnosed with autism. He used to be really good at going to bed would just get in his bed and go to sleep and would not wake until 6-7 in the morning. The last couple of months his sleep has been really bad. He will get a bit upset going to bed and will eventually fall asleep. After a couple of hours he will wake in the night but run in the room quite frightened. I'm not sure if he has had a bad dream but he comes in crying. Every night Luca will end up sleeping in our bed. We have tried to put in him back in his bed but then ends up getting up again. I don't know why all of a sudden his sleeping patterns have changed so much since he has been a baby he has always slept so well
