DESIGNING FOR AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDERS. Kristi Gaines et al. Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, New York, 2016. 232 pp. with 121 ills. (103 col.). 29 x 23 cm. LC 2015-46509 ISBN 9780415725279 In English.
Publisher's description: Designing for Autism Spectrum Disorders explains the influence of the natural and man-made environment on individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other forms of intellectual/developmental disabilities (IDD). Drawing on the latest research in the fields of environmental psychology and education, the authors show you how architecture and interior spaces can positively influence individuals with neurodiversities by modifying factors such as color, lighting, space organization, textures, acoustics, and ventilation. Now you can design homes, therapeutic environments, work environments, and outdoor spaces to encourage growth and learning for the projected 500,000 children with ASD (in the United States alone) who are expected to reach adulthood by 2024.
