PCP may not have the experience to diagnosis. He has to be the one to write referrals for neurologist, behavioral pediatrician, speech/occupational therapy, etc. As your son's pcp, he should be willing to help you guys find an answer. Good luck. Your school district can also test him to have an academic diagnosis. I don't know how old your kid is, but if he is at least 3, he can start pre-k/special ed.
