possible learning disibilities

My son Justin is in 5th grade He has 100's on all work except spelling and math facts. On the FCAT (Florida version of the TEST) He scored 4 in math with 3 being average. He's got a D in math because he can't pass his subtraction, multiplication and division facts. He's no where close to passing. He's losing privileges at school because he can't pass the tests. I had a conference with his teacher who told me he was lazy but very smart. I immediately contacted the guidance counselor to get a child study going. He refused because Justin got a 4 two years in a row in math. He even pulled Justin in and quizzed him. He knew his facts just not fast like they have to for the test... 100 facts in 5 min. We've done flashcards for three years and it's not working. Anyone know what works? Should I request testing in writing? HELP!

Yes you can as for an IEP and when they look at all of his subjects they can figure out a way to help like put him in a different class to be tested
