I'm past stressed. I'm trying to get my daughter to act well at school but she feels the teachers are ganging up on her. They act like they don't understand that dyslexia doesn't have to do with just reading. My daughter doesn't understand any of her classes and the teachers want to immediately kick her out the classroom and say she's being lazy. Then they want to call me all upset saying she's getting in trouble. Well I see why. As teachers you're supposed to help her. Not make her feel lower than she already feels. Stop rushing her to understand everything. She needs to take her time. I'm about to stop trying to get the school board to understand this and take it to court. Should I do that or will it cause me more stress? I'm trying to keep not only myself but my daughter out the hospital. She gets very upset when I get sick and it goes downhill after that. I don't know what to do anymore. I know prayer changes things and I know to put it in God's hands but idk how much more I can take.

It seems like you need to talk to a counselor about a IEP an individualized education plan here’s some information Under the individuals with disability act it helps them create a plan for your child, look though this article it might help. https://www2.ed.gov/parents/needs/speced/iepguide/index.html#:~:text=Each%20public%20school%20child%20who,be%20a%20truly%20individualized%20document. Hope this helps and she gets what she needs.
What grade is she?
she's in the 6th grade so it's her first year in middle school.
Shame on them, I got dyslexia as I got older for some reason. But I can imagine that’s very hard as a child. My elementary school back in the day thought I was dumb. And now I barely know basic math as a 22 year old pretty sad. Maybe transfer schools, I’m sure there’s schools with better educational resources for her .
I found out she had dyslexia in the 5th grade. Like you said you barely know basic math? It's mainly her math teacher. All her teachers are thinking dyslexia has only to do with reading. It's math too. Also, her dyslexia teacher plays favorites. I'm definitely not ok with that. I'm trying to keep my mind straight but I'm being pushed past my limit and once I get there, I don't think there's any turning back
Your daughter has a right to an education. She obviously has a processing issue. She needs more time for things to make sense. If she has been diagnosed with Dyslexia she should have an IEP.
Middle school is hard anyway, why make it harder on a child? Push and fight for your kids education. Know your rights. Get an advocate if necessary to help you get her what she needs.
I would see if you can get her an iep from the doctors. That way teachers legally have to help her more. Then if they don't take it to court. You'll have legal papers saying she needs the help.
Your daughter has a right to have IEP. The teachers have to obey the IEP or they get in trouble. I had one and didn't get to take my final exam in my Jr year cause I was out of town on a conference for my health Occupation class. My teacher refused to let me take the exam. He knew that I had a conference ahead of time to
I hope you keep all this documented, I have dyslexia and she should have an IEP, I graduated from the Cleveland public school system and the teachers understaffed in the class of 40 of us with all different mental disabilities or physical!

You can try an IEP and/or look for learning disability friendly schools. You might also be able to find a homeschooling system that will work better for her. I would also suggest trying to see if you can get any of the teachers to work out aids like having her school work printed in dyslexia friendly fonts like comic sans.
As a person with an IEP you should definitely check it out. It gives your daughter a more individualized education plan that caters to her needs. Things like extra time on assignments, separate rooms for testing are also included as well, as well as one on one attention from teachers.
