Title: A relaxation station for self-regulation
Author: Maich, Kimberly; Davies, Adam W. J.; van Rhijn, Tricia

Abstract: Inclusive classrooms with complex, diverse students have many challenges, including that of effective design. One included element should be a relaxation station, designed to teach and promote everyday self-regulation skills within a calmer and more private space. A relaxation station is an essential component in every classroom to support sensory needs, self-regulation, and so on, in an everyday and easily accessible manner appropriate for students with and without disabilities. This article presents a rationale as well as practical guidelines on how to develop such a space effectively, including recommendations for its design (e.g., boundaries), procedures (e.g., entry / exit), and elements (e.g., items, tools, and visuals).
