Always name your essays clearly so that you are absolutely certain you are uploading the correct essay.
Otherwise you need to look at your university's regulations about resitting and mitigating circumstances. Different universities have different rules.

I don't think there is much you can do. Your university may ask you to do a capped resit of that essay in the summer, so it would be a good idea to talk this over with your lecturer/personal tutor.

Even though you have dyslexia, they may argue that you should have named your files more clearly to differentiate between them, and that comes down to you really.

I'm not sure what dyslexia has to do with it. It's a bit harsh, they could have emailed and asked for the correct one and just applied late submission penalties. Perhaps ask to resubmit with penalties for lateness. Do you have any timestamps back ups you could show to prove it was completed? You may just have to accept the 0.
