The principal at my sons school disagrees with Aspergers Syndrome diagnosis

My son is 4 years old and in pre-k at a local school. He was just diagnosed with Asperger's a few weeks ago, he has had so many problems in 9 wks of school from hitting and kicking the teachers to crying all day wanting to be held. The principal says she does not see the Aspersers because during a meltdown she can bring him out of it by being very stern with him. The school psychologist has stepped in a few weeks ago to evaluate him, after the first eval. decided that is was best to go straight into full developmental eval. instead of screening waiting for the results and then doing the full evaluation. All other signs are there no social ability, continuous putting non food items in his mouth, the meltdowns, hard time transitioning or change, very sensitivity to loud noises, and repetitiveness. Can the principal take him out of his IEP is she disagrees with the diagnosis?

Legally, no she can not do that if he has a diagnosis that is put on his record. Is she a medical professional or psychologist? No. And it is your choice what you do for your son legally.
