Keep reading to discover more about dyslexia and how Mind Mapping can help those with this neurological difference.
Many people with dyslexia are wonderfully creative and abstract thinkers. Their ability to think differently to traditional, linear methods makes those with dyslexia excellent problem solvers, incredibly imaginative and able to come up with truly creative ideas and solutions.
It’s therefore important that dyslexic people have the tools and support to enable their talents to shine.
A Mind Map is a visual thinking technique and an invaluable tool in the creative thinking process.
Using a distinct combination of colors, images and visual-spatial arrangement, Mind Maps are ideal for helping those with dyslexia organize and break down complex information.
Some of the popular ways of using Mind Maps include:
Mind Maps are like a chameleon for your brain, as they reflect your natural thinking processes. In the same way your brain will spark off associated thoughts from one idea, Mind Maps allow you to capture these infinite chains, encouraging your brain to expand and explore these ideas.
Mind Mapping is a great aid for those with dyslexia because we tend to think in shapes. That’s how I remember things. I picture an object which relates to the sequence of what I am doing or talking about. I believe “thinking squiggly” with a Mind Map aids my creativity – which is what makes Mind Maps such a powerful tool.
