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 have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
