There are developmental milestones joe children.
If a child is behind, there i'd cause for concern. There is specialized neuropsych testing.

In brief: Yes
If you are worried about a child who is not making progress in school, a psychologist should then test your child's iq, memory, handwriting, and achievement scores.
A physician can then assess for a cause, if present.

Gosh, a good evlauation probably by a child neurologist and at least a chidl psychologist or neuropsychologist would be needed.
Deficits in one or more areas could reflect limited globa intelligence or be part of a far, far more complex neurodvelopmental or neurological condition. Usually an iq test as well as a formal adaptive behavior measure is needed for classification purposes.
