Terapi Warna Pada Ruang Bermain Anak Autis

Selvi Laka, Yono Putra, Cornelia Hildegardis


One of the therapy methods on autistic children is color therapy, because the colours can cause psychological effects on children. Play room is the most effective room to be held a therapy, because in the play room children feel free to express themselves without realizing that they are being treated. Sensitivity to the colours of autistic child is expected to realized in the play room with the use of artificial lighting so that it can “provoke” a child sensitivity, without having to change the shape or colur of the room.
