Many of the kids that I work with come to me during times of stress or crisis. This calm corner would give them a place to sit, relax, and use the fidgets to calm down enough to a place that they would be ready to talk to me about what is going on at that moment. These fidgets that come as accessories are just the things that my young kids love to play with, as they speak to make them feel more comfortable. The bean bag will also be a place that they want to actually come and sit and talk to me as it can be kind of scary to come speak to the school social worker at times. This calm corner would help all of my kids to relax and speak with me about the issues that they are having at school and at home. Thank you all for any help you can give!
