My dd has mild dyslexia and has been through all of Apples and Pears, among other things. This year as a follow-up she used ACE Spelling, 4th grade level. I think it really helped her. All the writing and practice made her more aware of spellings in general, and the specific words she learned in ACE have for the most part actually transferred over to her writing.
We could continue on with ACE level 5 and then 6 (at a faster pace) for her 8th grade year, or just drop spelling assuming she's gone about as far as she can go. At this point, she spells at about a solid 6 grade level, but with random mistakes here and there.
For 8th grade she will be doing Algebra 1, Apologia Physical Science through Apologia Academy, High School English 1 at our Co-op, and learning about horses for her elective, and possible Sign Language at our co-op.
And, instead of ACE is there a last-year Spelling book that is perfect for the last year a student would be "doing" spelling? (Apples Daily Drills did NOT work for us because after the first 20 pages, HALF of the exercises were word scrambles!)
