That is ABSOLUTELY discrimination. I would call them out on it with a reply like…
“Not allowing a student to attend a field trip solely due to disability is excluding a child due to disability, which is against the law. I’m happy to file a discrimination complaint with the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights if you still feel you won’t allow him to participate. It’s up to you.”
Don’t let them get away with it. Educators should not be allowed to hurt a child, and excluding one child does exactly that.
