With the violent outbursts you may be seeing some type of mental illness rather than a mental impairment.

If she can read she is not dyslexic as that means INABILITY to learn to read..

In the USA a learning disability is normal intelligence with a problem reading, speaking or understanding language, writing or doing math.

Emotional illness can be depression, violence, hearing voices, seeingthings and lots of other things too.

Remember that the brain is an organ that runs on chemicals just like your stomach and everything else. Your ssister might have some type of chamical imbalance that makes her lash out.

It sounds like a lot more than dyslexia to me and I have been working with special needs kids for almost 30 years.

good luck
