    It will very much depend on your context and how you want to use it.

    For example for severe & complex learning differences, it’s an absolute must to include Snoezelen on the timetable, and cause & effect toys, switches etc help effect engagement.

    For sensory breaks proprioceptive equipment can be very useful, for calm downs massage, weighted / compression items, dimmer lights, beanbags, scented items, tactile items are great. But again, what is your need? Is durability a consideration eg if it will be used with volatile children?

    Sensory Direct http://www.multisensoryenvironments.com has nice stuff.

    what you want to avoid is either a room so pristine no one is allowed to use it or a room that gets used just to contain young people in crisis who need co-regulation.
