New In: Kids Easy Dressing School Uniform Autism Friendly @ Marks & Spencer

3 August 2016
Easy Dressing School Uniform Autism Friendly

Well done Marks and Spencer, they certainly listen to their customers needs and cater to them. They have just released a new range of school uniform that has been designed with the help of the National Autistic Society.

The Easy Dressing School Uniform Range is designed to help children get dressed easily either by themselves or with help.

There are eight designs included in this range. It is fantastic to see a range of clothing that is autism friendly. Many of the items have elasticated waists, velcro rather than buttons and clasps and are made from easy to wash fabrics.

They start at age 2-3 years and go up to age 15-16 years. That in itself is another rarity, you won't normally find specialist children's clothing that goes up to 16 years. Hats off to M&S they really have thought about this range.

Another great feature is the fact that this uniform looks exactly the same as the traditional school uniform. There is nothing to suggest that it is any different.

This range is available from the 1st August online, prices are very reasonable too, they start at £5 and go up to £16.

Keep up do date with all the cheapest school uniform prices by bookmarking this link.

You can Click and Collect your order for FREE or have it delivered to your front door from £3.99.

  • Jacqui H.

    just used this link to register for updates for the launch... i can't see anything on there any different yet

    • Doubtfulmum

      if you click on the link and look for the items with "easy dress" in the title you can then click on the description and it tells you. Is basically a shirt with Velcro under the buttons and pull up trousers both with label moved to pocket so it doesn't irritate. I too registered  to be updated but have heard nothing, but thanks to this link I have ordered the easy dress stuff to try. 

  • Toni S.

    Oh fab!

  • Vicky C.

    Thankyou. Ill have a look now xx

  • Jodie O.

    It's good start. However I've repeatedly asked for seamless underwear smaller than 6yrs and they haven't managed that yet. Autism doesn't only affect older children or during school hours. Take it all the way M&S!

  • Steph M.

    .. if m and s get it... why don't schools! Lol x

  • Beth R.

    Sorry but i have seen MUCH better in the past. There is nothing special about their uniforms other than their shirts have a velcro- like strip at the very top. I have worked with children not only on the spectrum but with other additional needs! One tip that i have seen time and time again.... remove fastenings, add velcro. If ties are required, tie it as you normally would then remove the loop at the back (part that would touch back of childs neck) and sew elastic on to create a pull on tie that can be used easily! Lots of places sell seam-free socks and underwear for children with such sensory issues.

    Dont want to take away any praise from M&S because its a big first step, however i think its got a very long way to go!

  • Sarah M.

    don't know if Connor still has an issue with socks? But the reviews on these school socks are canny.:ok_hand_tone1:

    • Ashleigh S.

      Aw thanks Sarah I'll have a look, some socks he does xx

  • Janine B.

    Thanks Hun

  • Sandie I.

    Thanks lovely! xx

  • Kelly H.

    this is what I was on about x

  • Terri-Ann M.

    I seen this! Great idea! Xxx

  • AnneMarie D.

    they might have those elasticated waist trousers we were talking about?

  • Claire L.

    Thanks x

  • Alicia C.

    Oh fab it's a good idea x

  • Mish L.

    I see your points but I was just showing my friend because her little boy is reception age and I thought it would be nice that he could still have uniform that looks like normal stuff but is a little less stressy to get on especially as my friend has other kids to get ready in the mornings. I think it's great that a high street store has thought of this

  • Beth R.

    So do i, and its fantastic that a high street store are taking the first steps, i just wanted people to know that there are other options too and adaptations that can be made if people have already bought uniforms etc. Love you x

  • Jodie H.

    may be useful for , there the easy dress items xx

    • Suzanne H.

      There's no difference in the normal uniform x

    • Suzanne H.

      there's still buttons on them

  • Lorna C.

    havent read it but u cld b interested x

  • Toni J.

    not sure of this might be useful to you. Not sure how your boys are with dressing. Xxx
