Forbush School for Autism

The facility, which is part of the Sheppard Pratt Health System, provides classrooms, offices, and special educational development spaces, including a playground specifically designed for autistic children. The program is organized to bring maximum daylight into the interior through skylights and the arrangement of classrooms around the perimeter.
