Special Education Facilities for Emotionally Disturbed Children.
Ontario Dept. of Education, Toronto. School Planning and Building Research Section.
This booklet shows several schemes for the use of teaching spaces and quiet areas for the emotionally disturbed. There are designs for three levels of emotional disorder--severe, moderate, and mild. The schemes shown for teaching areas for severely disturbed children are fairly rigid in their design, with noisy and quiet areas being clearly defined and separated. Classroom schemes for moderately disturbed children differ in the elimination of separate consultation rooms and washrooms; and the quiet room, which contains some furniture, may also be used for consulting purposes. In the classroom designs shown for mildly disturbed children there are fewer enclosed spaces such as quiet rooms and study carrels. Floor plans and sketches illustrate the various classroom arrangements. (Author/MLF)
