Design for Autism Event

The National Endowment for the Arts has funded an ongoing collaboration headed by Michael Singer Studio focused on research and design of classrooms dedicated to serving students that have Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Please see our “On the Boards” project category and select “Design for Autism” for additional details. As an extension of this project, Michael Singer Studio has been providing volunteer consulting services to schools in the US and abroad; making design recommendations to improve learning conditions for students that have ASD in existing classrooms. As part of this effort, Jonathan Fogelson – Planning and Design Associate with Michael Singer Studio, will lecture and provide the main substance for the annual workshop of the Israeli Association of Behavior Analysts hosted by the Kibbutzim College in Tel Aviv on January 7th, 2013. The workshop will focus on the main design considerations for classrooms that serve individuals that have ASD, and targets education and care professionals, as well as designers and policy makers.
