DESIGNING ENVIRONMENTS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS WITH ASD

 

GA Architects runs a series of half day seminars that aims to raise the awareness of the importance a good design has on the mood and behaviour of people with autism and their support staff.

The title of each seminar remains the same and has two common themes:

  • To address specific topics or issues related to autism and the built environment.

  • To engage the speakers with the audience in a general discussion on the topics presented.

 

Target Audience

Residential and educational providers of children and adults with autism and behavioural and learning difficulties, local authorities, teachers, carers, OT’s and professionals involved in research in autism and the care environment.

 

Programme

It is now widely accepted that people with ASD show signs of less challenging behaviour and enhanced well being if they live and learn in an environment that promotes a sense of inclusion and considers their specific needs. Each seminar addresses specific design considerations in the educational and residential environment that influence not just the mood and behaviour of people with ASD but also their carers, teachers and support staff. Please see Seminars Archive for a typical itinerary

 

Project Inception

  • Advice on the preparation of a digital survey if one does not exist. It is essential to have an accurate survey of the building (if existing) or of the land to be built on so that there are no errors in dimensions or levels.

  • Advice on the appointment of other consultants needed for the project.

 

Price

Tickets cover the costs of the seminar with any surplus being donated to a charity.
£90 for adults. £35 for students and carers.
