Instructional advances have given way to some exciting learning strategies which can be extremely beneficial to Neurodiverse students and working professionals. One strategy in particular is mind mapping. Adopted by over 75% of UK Universities, 2000+ schools in France, K-12 in the USA, and businesses across the world,  MindView is the industry leading mind mapping software for assistive and academic purposes.

MindView has been designed to help visual thinkers create impressive written assignments and presentations. The smooth transition from a Mind-Map to Word and PowerPoint means students can make powerful, formatted documents ready for assessment.

The added assistive technology software functionality, including text-to-speech, dictation, predictive text, and audio notes make MindView the ideal for supporting learners with SEND.
