If there are no behavior problems at home, my first assumption would be a lack of structure and/or discipline at the daycare. The child may be acting out to get attention, mimicking the behavior of other children, or its possible that the child's teacher doesn't know how to deal with him/her effectively. Is this a special needs class? Is the teacher trained to deal with children with Autism? I definitely think that medication should be out of the question. You don't medicate a 4 year old for having behavior problems!
