Today’s inclusive classrooms feature many diverse groups of students who have a need for teaching and supporting effective self-regulation skills. One element of classroom design that can support this area of need that permeates everyday interactions – and classroom successes – is the creation of a classroom space where all students can head for reflection, relaxation, and self-calming. Although such spaces can be beneficial for many students, it can be essential for some students, such as students with Autism Spectrum Disorder who are beginning to learn strategies to self-regulate in group settings like classrooms. Because such spaces are not restricted by age or grade and can support students with or without exceptionalities, a range of students in varying classrooms and schools can use this approach for those moments of every day disquiet, stress, or anxiety that occur throughout the school day.
