Add a wall switch to control ceiling lamp

The bedroom ceiling lamp in our new Jay Flight 28BHBE is too high for my vertically challenged DW to reach. I would like to install a wall switch and figure I can run a wire through the ceiling and into a cabinet just outside the bedroom to a switch I can mount on the outside of that cabinet. I haven't attempted to open up the ceiling mounted LED lamp yet. Does anyone have any advice as far as getting to whatever holds that lamp to the ceiling? I figure that I will need to remove the lens and hopefully see some screws holding the fixture to the ceiling. If anyone has had one of these apart, I would appreciate any input.

iF there's a ceiling vent and its prepped for 2nd AC, there might be a wire there that could be used to fish what you need to switch the light. Just guessing as I'd expect something to be there for the 2nd AC

I do not have factory LED lights, but if you can figure out how to remove the light cover, I would expect you will find 2-4 screws that hold the lamp to the ceiling. I removed one of mine to splice in and fish a wire to an OHC for additional lighting.
