Mindmapping is a tool which helps some visual dyslexic individuals to organise their ideas. Jottings, with images if wanted, can be displayed as a mind map or concept map and converted to a text outline. This can be developed into an essay or report and imported into a word processor. The mindmap can be used for presentation or revision purposes.
