It seems like you have tried a lot to help this kid. What does your principal or the head of the school say? I always find that when the student starts getting suspended or called in to a lot of meeting THEN they are willing to have the kid tested. It is sad that you have to inconvenience the parent enough to encourage them to get help for their own child but it seems like this goes beyond the norm.

We also have parents who can deny testing or not sign off on special education paperwork. Really, the only way that things change is when the school won't deal with the behavior of the student or the parents ignoring it. It is not fair that you and the other students have to try to ignore this kid. It might escalate as the year goes on

If you get no support, I would put the kid outside in the hallway or near the door where you can see him but he's not as disruptive. Not sure if you can do that or not but you have already put up with so much.
