Abstract

The learning environment is critical in developing the skill and mental of children with autism. However, designers are often unaware of the sensory issues and designing a unique environment that would affect learning process. The paper's objective is to identify the main factor in creating the physical learning environment for autism.  Partial Least Square Structural Equation Modelling (PLS-SEM) was conducted to develop a framework of the sensory environment. It is hoped that this paper could be an impressive contribution to technical agencies and designers during their design stage, thus creating a better physical learning environment supported with sensory design features.
