I would work with the teacher to create this area in a back corner...make it soft, with headphones and some sensory things to hold and squeeze...I would also work with the reg ed teacher to teach how to use calm down space to the whole class...not single anyone out as I know there will be others that would benefit from the space...show how to use it....put a timer in the space...tell kids to flip the timer so they know how long they can stay there....put up visuals that show deep breaths...Im sure there are other great ideas out there but for me I think how to use it and why it's there needs to be taught to the whole class...best of luck
