Clip to ScrapBook #3

last year in my sped room who needed this and the PT recommended a "cave."

We hung a sheet/curtain over three sides of a rectangle table with a Kinder mat, a pillow and a comfort toy in there. He was allowed to access it at will. Sometimes he could recognize triggers in himself BEFORE the meltdown and put himself there. Sometimes he went in with a fidget and just chilled. Other times we put his work on a clipboard and he took that with him.

You could also use a small tent or similar.
