Visual Thesaurus

Leave a comment

When I first read that this is a Visual Dictionary or Visual Thesaurus, I expected to see pictures with words – but it’s more like graphics that work like mind-maps, so in that sense maybe a nice tool that could help dyslexics, whose mind doesn’t work in the linear way that neuro-typical learners do. However, they still need to be able to read those words.

Check it out:

Visual Dictionary

some of the things they say:

“It’s a dictionary! It’s a thesaurus!
Great for writers, journalists, students, teachers, and artists.
The online dictionary is available wherever there’s an internet connection.
No membership required.”

I am working with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses and have opened a centre to expand Sydney Dyslexia to another location right on the beach at the Entrance North. I have written two books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time' and 'Nurturing the Secret Garden') as I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field.
