OP, even if your DS did get a diagnosis of dyslexia, the school probably wouldn't do much more than put a bit of intervention if place. You could probably do as much, if not more with him yourself.

My tactic would be to talk to the school about how his self esteem was being effected, how your DS is very aware that he is struggling, and how that is impacting on him.

Have you actually had your DS tested for dyslexia?

Who is threatening you with SS should you seek more diagnosis? Is it the school?

Not sure of the details but do teach in Scotland. This is not true of all areas. In my area of Highland he would get lots and lots of help and support. Can you look up - can someone help? The relevant Act which was about 09/10 which is about meeting the needs of every child? You might be able to quote that. Moving countries seems a bit extreme. How close are you to another LA? School?

GIRFEC is the one but there was an Act of Parliament which led to that which you should be able to quote from.
