Puzzling. If as you say he can't speak properly and has difficulty understanding people, there's surely something wrong. His hearing is fine. A relatively low IQ would add to the difficulty caused by any problems, but shouldn't have marked effects of the sort you describe. Maybe an even more expert psychological asessment is needed, and maybe a child psychologist's testing, to clarify the degree and location of the difficulties. Sounds like a degree of dyslexia and there are other more complex and related conditions, too.
