Clothing for autistic children and adults

autism clothing

Clothing an autistic child can sometimes be hard. Some children have great difficulty with wearing clothing they don’t find comfortable for whatever reason. Other children need help to keep their clothing on, or to stop them from smearing. Here is a small collection of companies that sell clothes for children with sensory issues.

Special Kids Company
Very high-quality long-length popper vests, short-sleeve and long-sleeve tops for the prevention of smearing. Sizes up to age 14.

Jettproof
“JettProof undergarments are made from Calmtex, a light weight, breathable, high quality sensory fabric which was designed for sensory care. They can be worn comfortably under a child’s clothing all year round. JettProof undergarments enable children to wear their favourite clothing (or school uniform) and benefit from this unique calming undergarment.”
