If your child is struggling in any way, you should seek an evaluation so you can get the information to help them. If it’s something he will “grow out of” like a phase or just a lot of energy, that will be the result of the evaluation. If it’s something clinical, like ADHD, then you’ll know there’s more going on and you need to address it.
If you want to help your child succeed, which I know you do, then an evaluation is needed.
