Dyslexic Child in Gaelscoil

I have a daughter who is dyslexic in second class in a Gaelscoil. Her English reading is below par for her age and she finds Irish reading very difficult. Just wondering whether I should move her to an English medium school? I´m concerned about emotional health and access to friends if we move her.

I would love to hear from others if they have changed schools and their experience of the change. Was it worth it academically and emotionally?

Thanks. PM me if you prefer.
