Dyslexia is often referred to as a “hidden disability.” It is more common than you might think, and many individuals are not aware of it until they are adults. Dyslexia has nothing to do with IQ. It is just that our brains are not built the same way, making it harder for us to connect letters, words, and sounds. I struggled in school and still have trouble with reading comprehension. I did not have a name for what was troubling me until I began investigating my learning problems towards the end of my doctoral study programme. After taking multiple dyslexia assessments, I realized that I have signs of severe dyslexia, hence, I started learning how to solve these learning problems using micro-learning, colors, visual communication tactics, various AI language tools. Moreover, micro-learning is a practical learning method as research such as Benjamin (2002) asserts that “When the lecture begins, most students are paying attention, and for most students that attention lasts for about 10 minutes.
