This sounds like a rather unusual problem, posibly related to Dyslexia. You could see a Paediatrician or a Child Psychologist, for a full assessment and advice on treatment. Being based in Cape Town, you might be able to arrange, usefully, for her to be seen at UCT or Stellenbosch, where it'd be good to get an expert opinion, and they'd find it easier to ask other relevant specialists to see her.
As Lucia says, this has nothing to do with intelligence, but because it can obviously be inconvenient and cause later problems with studies and jobs, it's worth exploring aalable treatment while she's young.
