My son is already diagnoses with Asperger's Syndrome with tendencies towards ADHD, ODD and Childhood anxiety...
Anyway he has just started 3rd grade and CAN NOT spell to save his life. They knew this last year and they have been working REALLY hard on it but here was are one month into the school year and he has failed EVERY spelling test. I started to wonder last year and continue to wonder this year... what can cause a kid to not be able to spell? He doens't seem to be dyslexic... he can read, not fluently but he can sounds out words and is ready on level. Comprehension is great...
when he spells, he still spelling phonetically and leaving out vowels. Like spelling my 'miy' He knew there was a why but her heard the i so he put it in there. Or spelling There 'Thar' and also 'allso' Words my 4 year old can spell no problem...
Yes I am going to ask the school for an evaluation of this problem but I need input. What do you think I need to be looking at? What could cause this?
