Attention Deficit Disorder – how to spot it

My son is almost 7 and is generally a good kid. He’s got a great heart. Lately I’ve noticed that he is starting to have problems focusing on certain things. If I give him a task to do and I don’t make sure that I have his undivided attention while speaking to him, he won’t do it and if I ask him to repeat back to me what I just said, he doesn’t know. I’ve also noticed that if I give him a list of things to remember, he has a hard time retaining that information. Should I have him tested? If so, do I go through his pediatrician for that or a mental health facility?
