Clothing for Sensory Kids!

on October 13, 2015

A parent shared the link for this clothing line called “Independence Day” for her son with autism.  Getting dressed with all the belts, snaps etc. was causing her to set her alarm for an hour earlier just to help him get ready for school.  In addition, the fasteners were irritating to him.  She discovered this line of clothes for young adults which are fashionable, comfortable and you can even purchase a GPS tracker for kids who are at risk for wandering.  The line includes t-shirts, dresses, tunics, leggings and cargo pants.

If you are looking for other sensory friendly clothing for other ages, check out this blog post on Friendship Circle.  These include soft clothes, swimwear, shoes and easy to put on socks.  Check it out!  Please speak to your occupational therapist before ordering any specialized clothing.  We can help you figure out if pressure garments or compression vests are right for your child.
