What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk.

The best way to get your child evaluated- which may or may not lead to a diagnosis of an exceptional learning challenge- is through your public school system.  Request a meeting with the special education team in writing.  They will be able to get you to those who can be serve your child.  Their contact information should be readily available from the office at your child's home school or the main district office.

However, note that often an educational team may ask for medical evaluations prior to any formal psycho-educational data is collected.  

Good luck!
