Start a conversation with your decision supporter.
Look at the picture to talk about what the word decision means.
The person in this picture is working out which door to go through.
There are three doors.
When they think about what is on the other side of each door.
Then choose one door they are making a decision.
Another word for choose is pick.
Supporters could use this picture to start a conversation about decisions that the person you are supporting may like to make.
Use examples that are meaningful to the decision maker to build understanding.
Try to use words that the decision maker would use.
Before you choose a door you would usually want to find out what is on the other side!
Finding out information is an important part of making a decision.
Information is not just facts. It is also feelings and values.
When the person walks through the door they are fulfilling their decision.
Decision making is not just about deciding, its also about fulfilling a decision.
When you make a decision you choose between things.
Picking without thinking about it is one way to choose.
If you choose without thinking you might not make the best choice you could.
Decision making is what you do when you think about your choices.
Then you decide.
