After much research into the latest scientific evidence, we have written a comprehensive resource that outlines all the background information, design principles, tips and plant suggestions you need to create a therapeutic garden for children with autism spectrum disorder.
Design Principles for Creating Therapeutic Gardens for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder takes a holistic approach to designing and implementing a garden space where users can harness the benefits of regular interaction with nature to achieve improved health outcomes. Our e-resource provides concrete, evidence-based information on how to create a bespoke garden that will nurture and extend children on the spectrum to give them the life skills, confidence and sense of wellbeing they need to manage their condition every day.
We strongly believe that every individual deserves the right to a safe and enriching outdoor space to experience the beauty, wonder and heightened sense of health that interacting with the natural world can bring. Investing your time and creativity into providing that space can help to enhance the lives of children with autism spectrum disorder and give them a gift for life.
We donate 10% of sales to autism-related charities.
