Brainstorming is the most basic step when you do a BulletMap.   The learning objectives and outcomes are directly aligned with narrative writing goals from:

This course teaches the basic fundamentals of BulletMapping with step by step instruction videos. Brainstorming or getting your thoughts and ideas out of your head is one of the most challenging things for people with dyslexia.

Dyslexics naturally have strong imagination and creativity but it sometimes get in the way when explaining something or coming up with an idea or telling a story. Their ideas come in random order that it’s hard to identify which one is more important than the other. This may hinder your productivity and may get you confused most of the time.

The BulletMap method helps with this process a lot because it takes out the random ideas, sorts them out with a map, then identifies the steps needed to achieve the goal. The process actually lifts up the heavy burden in your head.

Who is this Course for?

This is helpful for students and professionals with dyslexia who want a way of organizing their thoughts and ideas. If you’re looking for a way to manage your executive functioning better, the BulletMap method helps you do that.

The BulletMap has a ton of possible uses at work and at school. From presentations, story writing, business proposals, taking down notes, revision, etc., the possibility is endless.

Have you seen my description of the dyslexic brain as a Zero Gravity Workshop? If not, check out the video here. Sometimes people with dyslexia can confuse the order of your thoughts or facts and lose your audience when you retell a story. When you lose their attention, you can lose credibility and lose confidence.

But with the BulletMap system, it will be fun and faster than the normal way you tell a story. The BulletMap you create will help you organize your thoughts and facts and share your thoughts with clarity. And you won’t need someone to reorganize your work!


Children with dyslexia naturally have strong imaginations and creativity but it sometimes gets in the way when explaining something or telling a story. Sometimes, their ideas come in random order and it’s hard for them to identify which one is more important than the other. This may hinder their productivity and make them confused.

The BulletMap method takes all the confusion and brings so much peace and focus with only a single piece of paper and some pens.

Why is brainstorming so important?

Brainstorming is one of the most basic skill that every person needs to master in life. We all have ideas in our head but a person with dyslexia struggles to transfer those ideas from head to paper. In turn, they come up as unmotivated or uninterested. 

Our role as parents is to prepare our children to become independent adults. Someone that can make a positive impact on the world. But without the crucial skill of organising and explaining their ideas, they will find it hard.

Adults brainstorm to capture and organise ideas in the workplace. In the classroom, teachers try to do the same. However, in school, brainstorming is not taught in a way that effectively plays to their visual strengths. It just leaves creative children confused and frustrated.

Our team is passionate about helping children with dyslexia to learn the skill of explaining their ideas. Because we know they have a lot of amazing stories to tell but without this skill, their ideas can get stuck their your head.

What are BulletMap Students and Parents Saying?

Megan and Wyatt


“I was so worried (when he gets to college level) how he is going to take notes, how he’s going to ever learn to write papers, but now with Bulletmapping I’m confident that he will be able to do all of that… BulletMap is an answered prayer.” – Megan, mum of Wyatt

Janine and Evie


“I wanted to give her the best possible way to prepare her for schoolwork, for going into big school, into a University, onto life. And I couldn’t find anything until I came across this (BulletMap Academy). It’s like a lifeline.” – Janine, mum of Evie

“I began using the BulletMap system with my high school and university students in 2019. I have found that it helps ALL students map what the questions are really asking so they don’t stop before they are finished. Their essays and presentations are organized, include relevant and sufficient details, and address the prompt directly. They are finishing faster, scoring higher marks, and more importantly actually having fun. They are visibly less stressed and confident that they understand what they have learned and can answer the question to show what they know.”
