I am confused are the sighted kids allowed to listen to their books also?
 There is a reason why children read in school and there is an educational
benefit. Its ridiculous  to think that listening to a literature book is
going to have the same educational benefit, Sounds like they need to figure
how why he so slow and work with it. Find books that are high interest but
a lower grade level.     So the language arts teacher isn't concerned about
punctuation or spelling??

Something they can try is have him work with a para and read in pairs. Have
him a section than have the person reread what he read (so its less spread
apart) Than have him read again.    The issue with slow reading is that
sometimes the story gets lost in the slow paced reading. He is only going
to get better with practice.
