Over the past few months, children with special educational needs and disabilities have faced many changes to their day to day lives because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. Their routines, activities and support networks may have all been affected.
In preparation for the return of students in September, classrooms are being re-designed to meet the latest guidelines and social distancing measures however for those with complex needs who may have no awareness of their own and other’s safety, the challenges remain.
Safespaces are specifically designed to provide a safe, calming environment for students that can be easily adapted to be high or low sensory to meet a wide range of needs. For students who may feel anxious or with rising stress levels the Safespace offers a safe environment in which to de-escalate and begin to self-manage their own behaviours. This may be particularly useful when other rooms provided as calming spaces may now be unavailable due to spacing out of students.
