Abstract

The study of Thermal Comfort as perceived by children requires us to know Thermal Cognitive Knowledge (TCK): children’s ability to understand the feelings caused by iterations with the environment with respect to their own cognitive universe-world. Added to this is the need to define the questions that can be understood by children without the intermediation of the contents by adults. This chapter is a summary of the main issues affecting the study of Child Development and relations with the indoor environment and thermal comfort, and the information needed to prepare the contents of the survey questions to ask children.
