Dyslexia question

My DD (14) has had an assessment at school and I am confused as the SENCO has said:

"has a difficulty, not a special educational need"

What on earth is the difference?!!! Her CTOPP2 scores were generally all well-below average, although WRAT and DASH were all average.

I feel as though we are battling to get any support for our DD - we just had a meeting today, and basically we were told that we had to tell DD to go and find out what works best for her. I feel like they're washing their hands of her as academically she's achieving okay, so they probably don't feel the need to work hard for her.

Has anyone else had this experience at all?
