My 15 year old granddaughter, who is dyslexic, said that what works for one person may not work for another. She is SO right! Her daddy is also dyslexic. I have been dealing with dyslexia for a LONG time and it is far more complicated than phonemes and syllables!
We are dealing with people of extraordinarily high intelligence that have brains that are wired individually. In my experience, none of them will even begin to read and make sense of anything before puberty! They may memorize all the rules, as Brian did, or learn to read ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs - as Robin did - but modern languages are not "hard wired" into their brains!
