We all like the feeling of soft clothes as they come out of the dryer. For most of us, that experience is a simple pleasure. For many children in the world, however, soft clothes are a necessity.
More than 1 in 150 children have unique needs due to autism, Aspergers and other sensory processing disorders. For this population of children (which is growing at a 10%-17% annually), the clothes that they have to wear are uncomfortable and can be tortuous to wear.
Now, thanks to the efforts of a Brooklyn-based special ed teacher and a Chicago mom, these children will not have to suffer anymore. Together these women are launching 'Soft' clothing.
According to their website, 'Soft' is the first line of inclusive clothing designed with the needs of all children in mind--including those with autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD, and a range of developmental delays. Wide collars, flat seaming, ultra-soft cotton, and custom fits ensure that Soft clothing is comfortable for every child.
The even better news is that the clothes line is meant for all children, not only those with sensory disorders.
