Jay:  Can the school take away assistive tech and insist the child handwrite work for which the child needs the assistive tech as a disciplinary measure? (Offense was failure to follow a direction the child did not hear, she has ADHD, severe dyspraxia)

Yes they can. Whether it is morally/ethically or legally right is another question. Depending on how the IEP is written concerning handwriting, this could be a violation of the IEP. You can write a letter to the principal & special ed director expressing your concern & requesting an administrative or IEP meeting to address your child’s needs.
