Asda are well known for being one of the supermarkets to lead the way and they have just done it again with their latest school clothing collection aimed at children with sensory needs. George at Asda’s ‘Easy On Easy Wear’ range features school uniform items such as polo shirts and jumpers, and has design features that make them more suitable for children with specific needs.
The garments avoid design features that can cause distress to children who are sensory-sensitive, as Asda found 80 per cent of parents with a child who has additional needs said it’s difficult to get them dressed.
As such, design choices such as fabric, seam thickness, labels and fastenings have been taken into consideration for maximum ease and comfort.
Asda said: “Helping with independent dressing and made from sensory-kind fabric for extra comfort, our boys’ school uniform and girls’ school uniform will have them covered day-in, day-out. From pull-on polo shirts and school jumpers to easy fastenings, our range has been specially designed to help kids with independent dressing. Our easy on easy wear school uniform range also includes soft threads, non-bulky seams and label-free separates for maximum comfort.”
As a parent to a child with sensory needs I am so pleased to see something available which is affordable and has a great range.
