Most school districts won't test for ADHD. This isn't a problem. Just get it in writing from your doctor that your child is diagnosed with ADD and, in his opinion, needs accomodations in the classroom under Section 504.
That's assuming that 504 is "all" you want for your child. If your son's ADD is severe enough that you think he needs special education services then you want the doc to say DS is diagnosed with add and needs special education services under IDEA.
A doctor's letter *should* be all you need for section 504. For a Special Ed IEP, you're going to need the teacher backing you up that his educational performance is adversely impacted to the extent that he needs special ed services.
Get a letter from your doc, add your own cover letter saying that you are giving them this diagnosis on this date and that you await the date of the evaluation for 504 or special ed (whichever you choose) meeting. Keep a copy for yourself. If you're afraid that they're going to give you grief, send a copy to your district's special education director.
