There are many advocacy groups that may be able to steer you to an evaluator in your community. Try Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorders (CHADD) at http://www.chadd.org or the Coordinated Campaign for Learning Disabilities at http://www.aboutld.org to find out where there might be a local professional who can help you. Make sure that you share the background of your son's difficulties in school with any prospective evaluator, including the written results of the evaluation done by the school system.
