Must-Have Items For Creating a Calming Sensory Space Within The Classroom
The standard classroom supplies go beyond binders, pens, and notebooks for special needs educators. Having calming sensory items and spaces to decompress can mean the difference between a productive day and a day hampered by triggers and meltdowns. We would like to share what we consider to be some must-have items and considerations for any special needs education classroom.
Comfortable Seating Options
Noise Cancelling Head Phones
Fidget Toys and Sensory Bins
Music and Background Noise
Having these must-have items on hand is essential for creating a calm, conducive classroom environment so that students with special needs can thrive. Of course, this is simply a guide as there are many different creative ways to make any classroom more comfortable and inclusive for all students. As a special needs educator, what would you add to the list?
