Here are some things I've had some success with in my room: try giving him the letter cards and have him build the word before he writes it. The oral presentation of the word may be difficult due to an auditory processing component. To make the task more visual you can give him pictures of the words with dashes underneath to signify each sound/letter. I've also used a program called Phonographics to teach letter sound correlation and spelling. The students build words, the cards are sound cards, so more than 1 letter can be on a card. For example she Would be two cards sh e. You also teach the children to map the words. When you introduce the words you have them underline the sounds in the word. Later you can give them the lines as cues. A combination of letters that make a sound would have a longer line to cue them. Example,(she __ _).
