How to give effective and considerate feedback to autistic employees

Giving work performance feedback

Autistic employees may have greater sensitivity to feedback which can stem from having lower levels of self-esteem and a low sense of security. Feedback given in an inconsiderate manner can leave individuals feeling vulnerable, misunderstood and undervalued. Tips for giving work performance feedback provide some considerations when providing feedback to an autistic participant/employee.  Feedback given effectively ensures the person who receives it is more likely to understand it and know what actions they need to take to improve their performance.
