They may need an official assessment by someone connected with the ept ofEducation before they can arrange for special resouces or classses for him. Annoying, but uinderstandable if they don't want to waste scarce resources, and want to be sure kids get exactly the help they need. But it is totally, wildly, unacceptable if it takes YEARS for their "expert" to see a child in need --- that is uncomnstitutionally neglectful. YOu don't mentuion where you are, and I don't know what resources are available around the country, but if you could --- and they should be able to advise you on this --- get the boy assessed privately by a child psychologicst / educational psychologist within reach, this could reduce the delays --- especially if they can ( as they should ) give you a statement of what tests or assessments their unavailable specialist would do, so your private assessor could produce the information they need.
And I'd consider checking out if a human rights lawyer would consider challenging the dept about not meeting such obvious needs, breashing constitutional guarantees to children as regards education and health
