What is a Mind Map?

A mind map is an easy way to brainstorm thoughts organically without worrying about order and structure. It allows you to visually structure your ideas to help with analysis and recall.

A mind map can represent tasks, words, concepts, or items linked to and arranged around a central concept or subject using a non-linear graphical layout that allows the user to build an intuitive framework around a central concept. A mind map can turn a long list of monotonous information into a colorful, memorable and highly organized diagram that works in line with your brain's natural way of doing things.

Why is Mind Mapping Great for Neurodiverse People?

Mind mapping is one of the most recommended strategies to support individuals with neurodiversity, as it helps overcome barriers that can affect stress levels and personal productivity.

Mind mapping allows people to develop their ideas in a non-linear fashion and work visually. This strategy is proven to help better organize information, process large amounts of data and dramatically improve memory recall.
