After Rachel Miller’s Keynote speech she explains to me the system that she uses with her mother to keep on top of the workload leading up to her final high school exams. They just completed a 4-week online mind mapping course with BulletMap Academy . I got the rare opportunity to ask them how it has affected life at home and school in person at the Dyslexia Scotland Education Conference. Rachel gave a storming keynote speech to 150+ educators, see episode #17.
