In brief: Too little info

I sympathize, but your question is so general, it is impossible to offer a specific answer. If you think the problem truly is the teacher, speak to the principal or special educataion counselor at the school.
You can request a new iep at any time, which may include looking at private school options if child not recieving adequate care. If needed, seek a lawyer specializing in this area.

Another option, seek out support from other parents with similar condition- via parent support groups, parent resource center. If you cannot afford a lawyer there are non-profits that can help you find a parent advocate. There are many options to employ before, during and after your next IEP. All the best!

Then u request behavioral interventional plan (BIP) based on above, as school mandated to provide corrective interventions e.g.even ABA, OT, PT, Speech:

In brief: Legal help?

I'm not sure the question exactly, but there are options for children with autism.
If you are unhappy with the services at school, then you can request an independent educational evaluation for someone outside the school district to assess your child and make recommendations. You may need a special education lawyer to help. Some will work pro bono because the district may have to pay their fee.
