Summary – Creating Sensory Safe Spaces

In this course we looked at how to create sensory safe spaces that give people a break from sensory overload. We discussed why safe spaces are needed, when people need to use them, and how to make them work for you and your pupils.

We looked at

  • Why people might need a sensory break
  • Recognising when someone needs a sensory break
  • How to create a sensory safe space quiet space
  • How to use a sensory safe space
