Fashion Week!

Many autistic children experience sensory differences that affect the way they respond to tastes, textures and noises.

Sensory differences also affect the broader senses like vestibular (movement) or proprioception (body position and awareness of self in space).

Children who are sensitive to colours or tactile experiences can find some clothes or shoes difficult to wear as they feel uncomfortable.

In response to the differences experienced by people with autism, the fashion company Vans are releasing a new range of clothing ahead of Autism Awareness Month (April).

The range is ’ sensory-inclusive’ and consists of shoes in a calming colour palette that are ultra-comfortable.

There are also shirts with long and short sleeves to accommodate various sensory preferences… great news for the fashion-conscious!
