    It can depend on the underlying cause of her dyslexia, there are three possible underlying causes auditory processing disorder, visual processing disorder, attention disorder, or any combination of  these issues. So you will need to find the school best able to provide the accommodations she may need for the cause or causes of her dyslexia symptom.

    This is a website that has details of special schools in Britain. You might find it helpful. 
    But dyslexic children can cope with mainstream schools.

    Hi @bishop43. Does your daughter have an EHCP?

    It might be worth you getting in touch with the secondary school she's hoping to attend and talk about your concerns with them. They'll be able to discuss with you the support and resources they have available.
