Special-Needs Room Decor

By September 2, 2010

Follow me on:

PaintingI got an e-mail from a reader today asking if there are better colors to paint the walls of a bedroom for child with Asperger syndrome. I'm probably not the one to ask about that -- though my daughter and I love watching HGTV shows together, all our walls are blah white. I know there are some theories of creating sensory rooms that stimulate with bright colors or soothe with lighter ones, but I'm not sure how that would apply to a bedroom.

So I turn the question over to you readers: Have you painted your child's room a particular color for sensory or special-needs purposes? How'd that go? Are there any colors you'd advise against? Help a parent out.
