In brief: This is something

that would likely require somebody do a cognitive assessment and then that person would write the letter. There are several Neuropsychologists and behavioral neurologists in San Diego who can do this.
I would start by calling a few of these people and see who can get this assessment done in time to write the letter. The testing can be done in his native language.
