Hi, help for a friend please. Her son is in gr 4 and has very high language skills -great at converstations etc. If you only spoke with him and didn't see his writing you wouldn't think there was any problem at all, indeed he seems very intelligent. He has very low reading and writing however. His spelling is very poor (unreadable) and he can barely write a few sentences. He does remedial reading at school. My friend is worried that there might be an underlying issue. ANy thought about what it might be?
