I have the English dictionary checked in the Spelling Preference Pane in System Preferences, `English' set in TeXshop's Source->Dictionary and `English (Aspell)' in TeXShop's Edit->Show Spelling and Grammar panes. 

Under Filters->TeX/LaTeX for cocoAspell's System Preferences->Spelling pane (see the enclosed figure) I have `usepackage' for the command with `[]{}' for the parameters. Do you have that?

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz
