Thx Ariana Amorim of Serious Play!
Follow this guide to coaching kids or people who "think in pictures" how to create picture-based notes and outlines. Kid brains remember better by starting with the picture for a story. . ***Read the text while they create pictures to tell it. 
***They re-tell using their pictures. 
***Analyze the accuracy to improve the image words of the story (if possible) or the power of the images. 
Next time *** Divide the paper into number of topics 
*** Picture for each topic 
*** Re-tell & connect the pictures to create a branch from topic to topic 
*** Add smaller sub branches with new pictures if needed 
*** Re-tell 
Advanced*** Recreate the pictures from memory
