Sorry if this is long

Almost 13 yr old DD1 has Dyslexia and it has caused her to have low self confidence all her life, she gets very frustrated and lashes out, she has always had lots of trouble at school, if she feels hurt or thinks she is being made fun off she gets defensive and verbally lashes out at those around her, we have tried to talk to her about this and make her see this is partly why she has no friends and is linked to being bullied.
We moved house and DD'S moved schools, we all thought a new start would be a good thing, but even though DD1 made friends to start with, its all gone back to how it was, she is in a bad mood at home, comments are being made at school and i have been told she is calling others names now and then denies doing so, if they do anything back to her she gets upset,tells on them and then of course they want nothing to do with her.
It hurts us so much to see her like this but i have no idea what to do or say to stop this, i am at the point of taking her out of school even though i know this doesnt solve the issue.
Any ideas on how to help her would be fantastic x

I really don't have any advice but didn't want this thread to go unanswered, maybe repost under 'behaviour' ?

I hope things improve for you both.
