Oklahoma dropped the ball somewhere. It is a federal statute that a parent can request a full evaluation to be done at no cost by the public school. I am glad you are getting what you need now in Texas,

We just moved to Texas from Oklahoma and hes now just getting tested for a disability, Oklahoma kept telling me he was doing good but i knew something was wrong because hes not reading i kept asking them to test him but they never did. All they tested him was for the ADHD.

So at 7 he is unable to read? Has he had an evaluation thru the school for a learning disability? My younger sister was a late reader, but once it clicked she did great. What sort of feedback are you getting from his teachers?

Clarify, if he can't maybe a tutor can help, otherwise some rules and consequences need to be implemented.
