Interesting. Phoneme vs. ideogram, perhaps?

That seems to be the reasoning.

As I understand it, a Chinese child would not be dyslexic if learning English, nor would an (e.g.) English child be dyslexic if learning Chinese as a first language. If this is hardwired in the brain, what about immigrants? Could an American-born child of Chinese parentage read English normally, and if he were genetically dyslexic in Chinese, be dyslexic learning Chinese as a second language? Clearly I am as confused as my statements and questions.

I'll be on the lookout for followup research. Those are great questions.
