Richard Fynnmen's verbal skills were weak, and he only scored 125 on a IQ test, yet he was probably the great physist of our time. Have your bother take the IQ test, where they measure and report on 15 separate skills.

I found out that 14 of my 15 abilities were 20-30 points higher than you would expect from my single number IQ score. Considering that your brother is dyslexic, and still manages to score 120, I wouldn't be surprised if your brother share some, but not all, of your talents.
