If a student is chronically forgetful, there very well could be an underlying issue involved. I am in a similar situation and my K-12 experience was difficult, but I was never checked out because my grades were good.
As someone hoping to continue his education in the field of School Psychology, I can say that there are students who pass under the radar because their teachers have not noticed a significant-enough impairment to refer them for assessment. If, as a teacher, you firmly believe the student has an underlying problem causing their behavior, contact the school psychologist; they will do the digging.
