I also may get the school to evaluate her for dyslexia - possibly even in the next 2 weeks - which is very exciting.

Make sure that any evaluation is a general one and not just for dyslexia. If there's something else going on, you won't find it if they look for only one thing, and she doesn't have that one thing. In fact, even if it turns out she does have that one issue, they won't find any others which could also be contributing.

I'd insist on the testing, and see what it brings out.
