This study aims to explore and understand how architectural form, space, and the built environment can act as a stimulant in improvement of lives of disabled children. The concept and importance of inclusive education are discussed while highlighting architectural barriers as one of the main causes for the exclusion of children with disabilities. The research focuses on understanding the symptoms and effects of disablement, for a more careful understanding of the specific accommodations and requirements of a disabled user. This paper attempts to address how sensory perception issues and physical disabilities (such as blindness and mobility impairments) affect the design of buildings. Based on building codes and regulations in the field of inclusive schools, aspects such as movement, space, color, light, shape, patterns, and way finding are thoroughly analyzed. The importance of nature concerning the well-being and the psychology of children is also looked into, as well as providing safety for children in any type of environment. Analysis and discussions of how the architectural environments can have a direct and lasting impact on the growth and development of children are presented in conclusion
