I thought they had to take steps for evaluation within a certain amount of time of a written request? Check your states laws on this.

He has severe ADHD. I looked it up and he should be covered under Oklahoma law. I only want him to be able to test alone. Even something as simple as tapping a pencil impairs his ability to focus.

Has he been diagnosed by a doctor? Has the doctor tested him or put any of this in his medical records?
