My son has been in a IEP classes at school since he started in Kindergarten. They work with him once or twice a week and usually it's with one to two other kids in the class( that is having the same problem that your child is having) - My son has the problem of however HE says a word and how ever HE hears it - that is the way HE spelles it. Also, He loved to read in Kindergarten and first grade and by second grade he didn't want to anymore. I started buying books of things that I knew he was interested in. Thomas the train,the B Bears, Big Red Dog, ETC.
So, this year (he's in the 4th grade) I had his hearing checked and then his speech (State of Ohio pays for that) He's been in there for aleast two weeks and he seems to be like it!. hope this helps.
