The child is the beautiful miniature of creation. Unlike our imagination, the child is not the small adult human. This small lively creature differs from an adult person in all dimensions including speech and behavior. Difference among child and an adult human is not restricted to behavioral and verbal issues. But, it is extended to field of disease and therapy as well. For this reason, treatment of child (pediatrics) requires wide psychological and emotional issues., The hospitals are some of architectural spaces, which are assumed as important in terms of design and function due to giving medical services and referrals of various groups of people. Sometimes, compulsory attendance in this space may induce us specific sense where this sense is dubbed along with pain and worry or stress exerted to the patient and this issue may be intensified about children who have mild spirit, weak body, and lower cognition about the environment and this may impose therapeutic process to difficulty and problems for parents of child and personnel. Through analysis in psychological effect of color in environmental graphic (design) by conducting descriptive analysis for exploitation from experiences of these communities toward improvement of climate in national children hospitals, we may come to this result about application of suitable color in graphical design used in this space that what observance of this issue may play basic role in coordination with architectural design space for children hospital in improvement of accepting this climate for children and personnel and reducing some problems such as routing of accelerated activity, reduced stress, mental comfort, and improvement quality of job satisfaction for the given personnel in that space.
