Many U.S. schools have modified their special education curriculum/programs to support increasing numbers of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This scoping review of literature focuses on the spatial configurations and qualities of classroom environments to benefit students with ASD with the intent of identifying recommended classroom and school characteristics according to Mostafa’s ASPECTSS™ classifications (2006, 2008, 2014). Modifying classroom designs have improved students’ learning performance, reduced negative behaviors, increased attention span, and enhanced overall quality of life (Khare & Mullick, 2009; Vogel, 2008). <br><br><br>
