Soft, seamless, tagless clothing for children with ASD, SPD
Posted in the Autism Forum
#1 Dec 28, 2007
Soft (clothing for all children) is a specialized line of clothing for
children with extreme sensory sensitivity, or "tactile defensiveness",
which is associated with Autism, Aspergers, and Sensory Processing
Disorder. I am a special educator from Brooklyn, NY, and I am developing the
clothing along with parents, and individuals with sensory sensitivity, so
that the clothing can really be tailored to meet their needs.
Right now, we are finalists to receive a grant to make our clothing,
and all we need is the greatest number of votes to win. Please take
one moment to vote for our idea on IDEABLOB.COM by December 31st.
Voting only takes a moment, and this idea will really help a lot of
people! A few clicks will take this idea a very long way!

Happy Holidays and Happy VOTING!
Soft(clothing for all children)
Here are some quotes from some of our supportive voters:
"My son is 12 and I can't even express how difficult it is to find soft shirts and jeans. Back to school shopping takes months of checking every store in the area from June till September. Thank you so much for your efforts, I hope this works and that you will extend the line to help older children and adults. Sincerely, Patti Boston, MA"
"Oh, I SO hope you win! My daughter has Autism and yet wants to dress cute. We've been buying the cheap cotton-knit clothes at WalMart and they just don't hold up to all of her flopping around. Even with those we are cutting out tags all the time. As a side note, I'm an Aspie with sensory issues myself, so an adult line of clothes might be an idea as well. I love yoga-style clothes because they're so loose and soft. But, you can't wear those all the time."
