5.5 year old son and dyslexia test at school?

My son has very bad speech delay, he's had hearing tests etc and they're happy with the outcome. When he started school his speech delay was very bad, the teachers would have to find his sister (1 year older) to basically translate what he was saying, only really immediate family can understand him, so not even grandparents who see him on a daily basis. Anyway, the school sent out a letter saying they would be performing a DEST screening, to see if he has signs of dyslexia, a couple of weeks before the school holidays I was called aside with a handful of other parents to be told he'd shown signs of dyslexia, but it doesn't mean he's dyslexic. He'll continue to work with a SALT when in year 1. Should I now go to my gp, will they know the results already? I'd just like to get him as much help as possible, now he's moving to another year group with new teachers (who taught my daughter the previous year) and they've already said it will be difficult for them to understand him, they've openly admitted that they can't believe how different he is from my daughter as she's only a year older. Any advice appreciated
