The Building as a Therapeutic Tool: Creating a Children’s Treatment Center

This webinar highlights a case study of the ErinoakKids Centre for Treatment and Development and explores how the design caused the building itself to become a tool for therapy, learning, and teaching. Robert Hofmann will identify how the building enhanced therapy for children with physical and behavioral disabilities through the use of multisensory stimulation rooms, landscape, innovative approaches to learning, expression of play, achievement, and memory, as well as a "going to school" experience for children in the autism program. The ages of ErinoakKids range from newborn to 18 years, so it was critical that the design supported the wide range of patient needs and incorporated design principles that are child-friendly without being child-like. Come hear how they did it!
