Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
In the United Kingdom, a similar definition was set forth by the Rose report (Rose, 2009) and is employed with funding from the Department of Education to the Dyslexia-SpLD Trust (n.d.). Definitions vary more widely beyond the English-speaking world, with more attention to visual difficulty in some and less concern for phonology in cultures using nonalphabetic languages.
