Designing learning spaces for children on the autism spectrum
Iain Scott is an architect and in this paper he sets out the key criteria which need to be borne in mind when designing learning environments for children on the autism spectrum. He illustrates these points by looking in detail at four newly created units and schools. It is a very rich paper and will be a great asset to architects, designers, teaching staff and pupils involved in creating effective spaces where children feel comfortable and within which they enhance their learning potential.
