Abstract

This article addresses the issue of therapeutic and educational centres for children with autism. Autism, which affects perception and behaviour, requires specialised care, of which the built environment is crucial. This article presents the concept of a centre that meets the individual needs of children with autism, promoting a safe and welcoming environment for their development. Particular emphasis is placed on spatial aspects that facilitate social interaction and tranquillity. The paper is based on research in the literature and analysis of the collected information, offering new insights into the design of educational spaces for children with autism.
