Squiggly with different level

Dear Experts,

I am acting as a project manager for an iPad application that will utilize some spell checking capabilities.  Since I do not have experience in FB development, I have contracted a team of game developers outside.
What I want to accomplish is to have different levels of spell checking, for example, at level 2nd grade, I would like the vocabulary to be limited to that level.  No swear words, no difficult words that 2nd graders would not want to use.
The developer team suggested Squiggly, which I researched, but as I found the way to add words, I could not find the way to subtract or restrict words.  Frankly, if I had to take Squiggly and start subtracting words to drop down to 2nd grade level, I would not be able to do anything else, so I don't think this approach is appropriate.
Is there a better approach to this problem?   I was thinking more like being able to purchase already made dictionary libraries and substitute for different levels of deployments.
Please advise.  Thank you.

How many words do you want in the list?
For 2nd Graders consider the National Reading Vocabulary lists or even Spelling Bee lists aimed at that age group as your source data.

Hi, Thank you for your response.
Are there a form of those dictionaries that can be incorporated into Flash Builder Code?
It sounds very logical, but I don't know the mechanics of being able to use them.

It might be possible to find them as .csv text files which would be easy enough for your programmers to incorporate but most would probably mean a bit of cut and paste from other sources. Have a quick Google around for both the NRV and Spelling Bee word lists & see if they could easily be imported to a .csv type format. If so you could probably develop lists for other age groups the same way if you are developing your product.
