Interior Environment Enhancing Child Development
Environment has been a crucial factor determining the effectiveness of medical treatment, especially for mentally related disorders. The study uses the autistic treatment environment as a case study to examine relevant environmental factors supporting the learning process of autistic children towards an environmental design model, the improvement in behaviour, and be able to stabilize the patient’s emotion. Results from the study are useful for the prognostic study in autism. The final modelling could be applied as a part of special educational programs to extenuate the behavioural and emotional disorders and to improve the social skills in autistic children.
