"My son's school feels no obligation to assist with any kind of attention-deficit social/emotional interventions or training. Can they do this?"

This is a tough question. The law states the school needs to offer help if the child is failing to learn. Obviously they feel if his grades are good he is learning and own interfere. However the law also states that behavior issues can be a part of a learning plan, IEP or 504.
You will need to document these behavior issues and have the information also provided by teacher stating that child's behavior interferes with learning. Ask the school psychologist to observe one day during a time the teacher has identified as particularly stressful for you child. This may help document the behavior and start some support occurring.
