Boston Children’s at Brookline Place, and its theme “The Amazing You,” is a collaborative architectural and environmental design paradigm being developed for Boston Children’s Hospital’s Neurodevelopmental Center. It stands at the forefront of research and care of kids with varying neurological abilities including autism spectrum disorder, a condition increasing in prevalence. This project seeks to answer “how can we transform a potentially traumatic doctor visit to a more positive and safe experience?” The Amazing You effort aims to elicit meaningful and inspiring connections through design. Hear how a multidisciplinary team, including clinicians, neuroscientists, families, patients, and designers teamed up to thoughtfully design and develop an environment benefitting a neurodiverse population.
