I agree that it can be difficult to identify dyslexia when other developmental disorders are present.  Disorders like DCD,language delay/disorder and even Meares Irlen tend to be more obvious and therefore provide a reason for the pupils' difficulties.  There are also many symptoms which a teacher may simply associate with a speech deficit. A teacher, however, should definitely pay close attention to any speech delays since this can be an early warning of dyslexia.
