Can a district refuse to evaluate for special education services because they reject SPD as a disability?

My step grandson has been diagnosed with SPD. The district told his mother that they would not consider an evaluation to special education because it is not a recognized disability under IDEA. However they are providing one day a way of limited OT services but no IEP nor will they look at services under Section 504. What can this mother do to insure that son is receiving an appropriate education?
Can't SPD exist with a recognized disability i.e. other health impaired?
