Calming spaces inside of a classroom can help students disconnect from a possibly out-of-control emotional or sensory situation. Students can then reconnect with the classroom after they are ready or after a set period of time.
“A calming space is an area in the classroom where a student can go to help the student relax, refocus, and recenter.” – Calming Space, Goalbook App
