What are you doing at home to reinforce what is being done at school? There must be effort put in throughout all facets of his life if progress is to be made. Please do not think that I am assuming you are doing notihng - I am not. It is easier to offer assistance if all efforts are known...then I can perhaos offer other suggestions.

From what you wrote about the not being able to read, it sounds to me like dyslexia. I've heard that the Susan Barton reading programs can help children whom have reading difficulties. This program is usually not used by schools.
What aspect of writing does he have trouble with? Is it the fine motor, expressive or spelling. If it's the fine motor he might have dysgraphia. If this is part of his struggles you should request to have him tested by an occupational therapist. If it more expressive, request in writing that the school administer the TOWL ( Test Of Written Language). If it's only the spelling it's most likely part of the dyslexia.
