Clouse’s team investigated the optimal design of spaces to be used by children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Key design criteria tested
Mostafa has written a classic article on how design can support the wellbeing of people on the autism spectrum.
Design can support positive experiences for people living with ASD, ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, neuroticism, depression, and other psychological challenges. Recognizing design-experience links is becoming particularly important as more diverse groups of people live and work together.
Researchers are developing a better understanding of how the sensory experiences of people with autism change over the course of their lives.
Many users of designed spaces and objects have sensory or psychological challenges that complicate their experiences in the physical world. These people might be visually impaired, deaf, depressed, or have ADHD or ASD, for example. Cognitive scientists have learned a great deal about how design can encourage positive life experiences for these individuals.
