Mom creates clothing line so autistic kids can dress themselves

Mom Creates Clothing Line So Autistic Children Can Learn to Dress Themselves - ABC News

Quote:

So Thierry started Independence Day Clothing, a fashion line for those with cognitive impairments or physical handicaps, so that people like Liam could get dressed independently and look just like everyone else.
Quote:
there are hidden helpers: there are no buttons, no zippers, no tags, and no laces," Thierry said.

they are also constructed without a designated back or front so that it will never look like someone is wearing them backwards. Because people with autism have sensory issues, Thierry said, she made everything with super sensory smooth fabric, so nothing in uncomfortable or difficult to put on.

This has become my favorite thread of all time on c-d. Thanks again, Mr_Geek, and to all those contributing.

Here's a story of a small kindness that led to a much larger one.
