The aim of the current study is to examine what presentation preferences adults with different neurodiversities have. The specific neurodevelopmental disorders we have chosen to pursue are: ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Dyspraxia. The stimuli we have chosen to test are: font size, font colour, font type, line spacing, background colour, presentation of instructions, presentation of title and types of rewards. Participants were asked to complete a number of sections via an online survey. Participants were asked to rate how easy a sentence was to read for them. Each sentence had one of the following variables changed: font size, font style, spacing between characters, spacing between lines, and background colour. Each item was scored on a 5-point, Likert-type scale (1 = strongly disagree, 5 = strongly agree), so that higher scores reflected that the sentence was easy to read. Participants were also asked to rank the sentences from least favourite to favourite per variable. Participants were presented with example instructions and were asked to select the response that most accurately represented their opinion of the layout of the instructions. Each item was scored on a 5-point, Likert-type scale (1 = strongly disagree, 5 = strongly agree), so that higher scores reflected that the instructions were easy to read. Participants were presented with some example titles and had to rate how much the title in the example was distracted from the main text. Each item was scored on a 5-point, Likert-type scale (1 = strongly disagree, 5 = strongly agree), so that higher scores reflected that the title was not distracting from the main text. Participants were presented with different icons for collecting rewards and were asked to rate to what extent they would enjoy collecting rewards using those icons. Each item was scored on a 5-point, Likert-type scale (1 = strongly disagree, 5 = strongly agree), so that higher scores reflected that the icon was very enjoyable.Results indicated that all neurodiverse groups had similar preferences across all variables, with one category in each being significantly preferred across all groups. The exception to this was background colour, in which each neurodiverse group preferred a different colour.
