When designing spaces for individuals with Autism, there are specific design strategies that can be employed to create optimal spaces that can have a positive impact on special learning and sensory needs. Interior Design for Autism from Childhood to Adolescence gives designers the exact information they need to implement these design strategies in their own projects. Projects covered relate specifically to the age ranges from childhood through adolescence, including high schools, residential group homes, and workplaces. The main neurofunctions of Autism are covered along with specific design techniques that can be used to address each one. Information on toxins and material selection is also included.
