Creating Space for Autism by Annabel Martin
More than one in every hundred people in the UK are on the autism spectrum, and that figure is increasing. Environmental sensitivity in people with autism means that individuals are unable to separate from their environment and how it makes them feel. We know that the consideration of natural colour schemes, image and spacial arrangement can have an significant impact on the quality of everyday life for anyone on the spectrum. Annabel Martin brings years of experience designing buildings and interiors for people with autism and learning disabilities to this much-needed book. From changing the smallest detail in our own homes, to redesigning shopping malls and public service buildings, she makes available her knowledge and experience to parents, carers, businesses, schools and local councils in order that we can create a social environment where people on the spectrum feel included and comfortable.
