Dyslexia support in Primary schools

What support, if any, do your children with dyslexia get at Primary school?

It turns out that DS2 is very likely to have dyslexia. DS1 has autism, ADHD and dyslexia and school have been absolutely crap. We are currently going through the EHCP process to get DS1 into a specialist school.

I therefore know already that they won't do anything to support DS2. I think I therefore need to move DS2 to a different mainstream primary but I am asking because maybe non of the primary schools support dyslexia and this is just the norm.

DS has ASD and probably has dyslexia although no diagnosis - school ed psych won't assess him for dyslexia even though he scored 'moderate risk' in the screening, because she thinks his difficulties are all due to his ASD.

However, his school have put some support in place anyway - he has touch typing sessions, cream paper in his workbooks, and reading rulers.
