Unless your child has a hearing impairment rather than a learning
difficulty, these difficulties are typical of dyslexic people. Try
"dyslexia" on the internet or in your library. There is so much written
about it now. One of my most useful books as a teacher is by Bryant and
Bradley called Children's Reading Difficulties. It describes recent research
and has 2 good chapters on multi-sensory teaching methods using plastic
letters which might help your child. (Depends on the type and severity of
the dyslexia.) Good luck!
