In general, dyslexia doesnt get much of a guernsey for support anywhere in Aus - it doesnt attract additional funding as a disability and is usually supported from in school supports. If there is an intellectual disability then you may get additional resources - bring any psych assessments you may have. Schools tend to use their "remedial" resources in ways to maximise coverage for kids with difficulties and what they do one year they may not do the next. The local school should be prepared to cope with kids with difficulties and they are obliged to find a place for a child in their catchment area.

Dyslexia awareness is growing but very very slowly and there is a lot of generalisations about it over here. I would maybe try contacting SPELD QLD and Margaret Hardy who runs Dyslexia Testing Services in QLD - she may be able to give you some advice regarding schools. However, as Quoll says it gets covered in school but schools don't always have specific programmes.
