Every child has problems with spelling. But it gets better with time. Just because your child spells wrong doesn’t mean he or she has a developmental disorder. You have to take into consideration, your child’s age and experience with spelling. Most children that have just started to spell have a tendency of using ‘invented spelling’ when they are just starting to spell. This usually means they are trying to figure out all the sounds associated with a certain letter. This is often called ‘sounding out’. Most of the times when children use such a method, they do ending up spelling incorrectly but that is not much of a problem, as long as they are able to sound out most of the letters correctly. Remember that any language has complex rules and can be tricky. In English itself there are words like ‘laugh’ that do not sound like the letters used. So you have to give your child the time to develop a knack to understanding sounds and interpreting it.
But if the child continues to make spelling mistakes, it could indicate a real problem in reading or attentiveness.
Dyslexia is a condition which can affect your child’s word-making capability. It makes it difficult for children to identify the sounds that each letter represents in a word as well as the sound of the word itself. Dyslexic children hence develop a reading problem, which also affect their spelling prowess.
Attention disorders like ADD or ADHD also affect a child’s spelling skills. The lack of concentration may affect their ability to notice what they are writing and hence cause them to misspell regularly.
With proper aid and help, children can work on these problems and improve their spelling too.
With special education these children might find great help. By virtue of a carefully constructed special curriculum which includes occupational therapists, special educators can actually help your child overcome this difficulty. Professionals with experience in handling children with such problems can actually help devise a planned structure and exercise to motivate and help the children. Children diagnosed with dyslexia, AD, or ADHD may need counselling, therapy and other specialised help to overcome the difficulty and special education provides easy access to such specialised professionals. Special education introduces special curriculums and constant evaluation of your child’s development so that you are always informed and can be a more integral part of your child’s development.

Chaitali Madam had been a great support for my child since last few years. We never knew what is the role of a special educator in the treatment of a child with special needs. She is definitely the best special educator in Kolkata.
