I do not have any specific curriculum to suggest for you.  The fact that your
son "sees" mathematics is a plus.  There is a site devoted primarily to
learning disabilities.  Perhaps you can find what you need at this site.

 LD ONLINE - THE INTERACTIVE GUIDE TO LEARNING DISABILITIES
              FOR PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND CHILDREN

                    http://www.ldonline.org/

  A vast array of information on topics within the area of
  learning disabilities from CCLD, the Coordinated Campaign
  for Learning Disabilities, and the National Joint Committee
  on Learning Disabilities.

  LD In-Depth offers articles, research findings, and
  useful forums, including an area specifically devoted to
  dyscalculia, or learning disorders in math.
