I have a learning disabilty and had issues with spelling ever since I was little. Even when I saw the word, I would sometimes switch letters around. Beacuse of this, when I type, I sometimes make spelling mistakes. My tablet doesn't have spell check on some websites (ie this one) so, I look them up on google, but still make mistakes. People point it out and don't take me seriously and I been called stupid a few times. What do I do about this?

Don't worry about it, i'm well educated and people who didn't pass anything in high school think i'm a moron... I just got promoted but the people who didn't think i'm an idiot. But you know what? I work hard and I know things they have no clue about, it doesn't matter what they think i'm doing well and they're bitter and sour about that. Nothing can stop you achieving what you want to! Especially when you know that you're not stupid and you will have people who know you aren't. I mean the people who say bad things about me, how well do they know me? They don't! My friends who like me? Yeah they know me very well.1

I also struggle with a learning disability, though mine does not relate to spelling but often math and sometimes even basic mechanics (some things come easy to me and some things don't). For me, the only thing that has ever worked is figuring out the best way I learn: for me, it's consistent visual repetition.
A fraction for example: I have to see HOW the conclusion is made. Forget the calculator, and show me how to do it long form. I repeat the long-form until it becomes familiar and continue to do it so I don't forget. When it comes to letters and spelling, I would say that the best thing for you to do is to read (books, articles, etc) and consistently write. If you find yourself constantly reversing or switching letters, you could actually have dyslexia, which may require a different approach. Unfortunately all I can speak from is my personal experience.1
