Mind Mapping has done so much good for my brother and I. Solving problems, planning and overcoming some of the barriers of autism.
iMindMap is frequently talked about as a digital platform for project management and organisation, but the techniques inherent to its features are not limited to these alone. A good example of this is the way in which iMindMap can act as an aid for autism and epilepsy. Vix and Chris contacted iMindMap to tell us how Mind Mapping is helping them and we wanted to share their success story with you.
My brother and I both have high functioning autism and I have uncontrolled epilepsy too. Learning through mnemonics has never been so much fun for us. Mind Maps help us plan out our daily routines without stress.
Using Mind Mapping techniques, working out daily routines is easy – iMindMap allows you to visualise the details of your tasks diagrammatically, making use of images and coloured branches.
Ming Maps are not only quicker to compile but also to find information. At a single glance, Mind Maps present all key information and any accompanying visual aids such as images or videos – a far more powerful resource than notes alone.
iMindMap is a fun tool, making the mundane task of putting together a to-do list for the day an altogether easier and more interesting affair. In addition, iMindMap eliminates the need for piles of loose paper, whilst being a reliable way to document all the important details of the day. In the case of Vix, who has uncontrolled epilepsy, this is vital as seizures can cause her to forget parts of the day and future plans.
My brother and I have found that mapping out our days with iMindMap makes it easy and stress free to understand our daily routine. Simple words for reminders and fun and colourful images are a good way to remember without using any words. Also we’re saving the trees by cutting back on all the paper we once used for endless timelines and notes.
The iMindMap team would like to thank Vix and Chris for kindly sharing their Mind Mapping experience with us!
