While you're right that a school cannot deny them an education due to you not making your child use meds, they can lobby for a tranfer to an alternative school since, in their "sober" state, they can become a distraction for other kids. While I, too, am anti-psychotic drugs, particularly how they are used in America, if your child becomes a distraction for the class, they can be legally removed. If you know your child can become that unruley, and you refuse to put him on meds, I would suggest registering him in some sort of an alternative school that deals with kids. A child that is autistic will not learn very well in a regular school, anyway, and those alternative schools (or "special" schools, however you want to put it) know how to deal with these kinds of kids.
