  • Durability: Furniture should be durable enough to withstand the demands of a classroom environment, including heavy use and movement.
  • Comfort: Furniture should be comfortable for students to sit in for extended periods of time.
  • Adjustability: Furniture should be adjustable to accommodate students of different sizes and needs.
  • Sensory needs: Some students with autism may have sensory sensitivities, so it is important to choose furniture that is made from materials that are not irritating to the skin and that does not make noise when moved.

Creating a Sensory-Friendly Environment

In addition to choosing the right furniture, it is also important to create a sensory-friendly environment in your classroom. This means minimizing distractions and providing opportunities for students to regulate their sensory input. Here are some tips for creating a sensory-friendly environment:

  • Reduce noise: Use sound-absorbing materials such as carpets, curtains, and acoustic panels to reduce noise levels in the classroom.
  • Control lighting: Use natural light whenever possible, and supplement with artificial light that is bright enough to see but not too harsh.
  • Provide fidget toys: Fidget toys can help students to regulate their sensory input and stay focused on their work.
  • Create a calming space: Create a designated area in the classroom where students can go to relax and de-stress.

Other Considerations

In addition to the furniture and sensory environment, there are a number of other factors to consider when setting up a classroom for students with autism. These include:

  • Classroom layout: The layout of the classroom should be designed to minimize distractions and promote student engagement.
  • Visual supports: Visual supports, such as schedules, rules, and charts, can help students with autism to understand expectations and stay organized.
  • Staff training: It is important to train staff on how to support students with autism and create a positive and inclusive learning environment.

Creating a classroom environment that is supportive and conducive to learning for students with autism can be a challenging but rewarding task. By following the tips and advice provided in this article, you can create a space where students can learn and grow to their full potential.
