Thinking Preferences

Recognising and supporting unique ways of thinking is essential for supporting the success and well-being of autistic volunteers. Thinking preferences occur due to the unique ways autistic individuals process information, and are often related to differences in planning, organising, attention and stress-management within a volunteering role.

There are a variety of ways to support differences in processing information, with many of these involving providing additional structure to a task through additional tools and resources. With this in mind, we have focused on recommending broad strategies that you can use to support the unique ways autistic individuals process information.

Key Points

  • A range of broad strategies to a task or role can greatly facilitate the engagement of an autistic volunteer and accommodate a range of different ways of thinking!
