This article by Judy Endow does come from the field of Autism but I have found the problem sometimes in my dyslexic clients: They have great ideas, wonderful stories and a lot of insight worth sharing – but what eventually comes out of their mouth is a poor copy of it. Pictures are not in a linear form, as the language that describes them. A lot of the value of a picture gets lost in translation and unfortunately stops some people from even trying to convey their valuable input.

Mrs. Endow does give some very useful tips on how to best overcome that obstacle, several strategies that have worked well for her and might work for you too. You don’t have to be autistic to have an avalanche of images and usually it is not only verbally, but also the written form can be a huge struggle.

After having worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, having founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, and having written 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 have decided to give away the knowledge and wisdom, through an APP, that is close to being released - for a tiny fraction of the cost of a program. Now my focus is back on ART - I love creating images of people and animals, honing in on the invisible self, the protection and spirit guides, or symbols of meditation, sacred art and mythology.
