Perhaps the doctor is concerned that you aren't knowledgeable enough to home school. ESE teachers have training above and beyond what a general ed teacher has. As a parent what training do you have? Do you know the 5 areas of reading instruction you need to cover? Are you familiar with the VATK approach for reading instruction? How will you teach phonics and phonemic awareness? What will you do to improve fluency and prosidy? There are hundreds of things you need to know to teach a child with a disability to read.
There is no curriculum specifically for dyslexia because dyslexia can be completely different in any 2 children. You need to do tons of research and if the doctor is recommending specific training I'd look into it.

rklooms what do you mean? She can't get an IEP written for her son becausehe's not enrolled. The school couldn't write the IEP even if they wanted to because they haven't worked with him or evaluated him. And getting another child's is not going to happen because they are confidential. Plus, they individualized. So one written for another student would be useless.
