Has anyone had success with particular spelling programmes for kids on the Spectrum? My ds, just turned 11, sees each new word as just that: a new word. Although he knows the various rules of spelling, he cannot apply them to when he finds a new word, or is trying to spell even familiar words.

I'm stumped, as it's meaning his academic scores go down MISERABLY because of his lack of knowing how to apply rules of spelling to words.

My DS is using a program called Spelling Mastery.

I have no idea if my information would help, but my child learns spelling so much better with an online game site called spellingcity.com

It's free and it's fun.
