I would recommend that you first contact his teacher to get some insights into what is going on. If that does not help, then I would ask for him to be evaluated by the school psychologist. The sooner you get your son help, the better off he will be.

Your request to have him evaluated for a learning disability is your right. If the teacher says or believes he just "not trying hard enough" or whatever else, write a letter to the school principal and make a formal request that way.
It wasn't until I pushed and demanded it that way, that my daughter was able to be evaluated. In addition to that, I had her pediatrician write a prescription (which was more of a request to the school) to have the psychologist evaluate her.
