I created a "Safe Spot" out of a new garbage can. I used Clifford bone material to decorate it and pillows to make it more comfortable. Students can go to the "Safe Spot" to calm down, have some alone time, or just chill out with a book. I have a basket of materials for students to use, as well as visuals of stress buster strategies.
Beautiful and calming...a perfect example that sensory rooms don't require primary colors. This is from a room at a nursing home as sensory design as evidence-based medical proof of increased funtionality in seniors with autism, dementia and other diminishing sensory connections and mobility.
