Dyslexia - spelling better than reading?

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this but really need some advice. I have just picked up a Y6 tutee for maths and english. he is behind in both - working at around a Y2 level for maths and Y1 for reading. I suspect he is dyslexic so used the placement assessment for alpha and omega in his last session - he didn't get very far before he made errors reading the words but we did all of them as suggested, when it came to spelling he got considerably further before a mistake was made (and not self corrected). This confused me somewhat and made me wonder if there was something else going on. Any suggestions?
