Sensory Friendly Clothing Line at Target!
Autism & SPD Friendly Clothing!
Target has announced they will be adding to more to this line. Their most current announcement states that they will be expanding the Cat & Jack line even further! This includes adaptive pieces of clothing to help children living with a variety of disabilities!
The Sensory Friendly Clothing Line at Target addresses the main problem for children with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) as well as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) with clothing. This line of clothing is free of those annoying tags, has flat seems, and one-dimensional graphics on the shirts. All of this is designed to minimize the amount of discomfort out children face with typical clothing.
The Designer Behind the Sensory Friendly Clothing Line at Target
I couldn’t have been happier that to find out the designer behind this sensory friendly clothing line at Target is a fellow autism mom! Stacey Monsen has a daughter with autism, so she understands the need to have fashionable clothing that meets the needs of children with Autism and SPD.
With a group of volunteers, Stacey spoke with other special needs parents and came up with this line to propose this line for Cat & Jack. What is even cooler, was the response of Target’s senior vice president of Product Design & Development.
“When the group showed us their ideas, it was exciting that they recognized this need in an underserved market and did the research to understand what our guests wanted.”
“…we’ll add adaptive pieces to help address the needs of children living with disabilities. This could include styles with zip-off sleeves and side openings that make dressing easier, and pieces that open in the back for those lying down or sitting.” – Juile Guggemos, Target’s senior vice president of Product Design & Development.
For our two children with autism, this is going to be a life saver! My daughter wants to wear cute clothing, but it is a struggle to find clothing that works for her. This sensory friendly clothing line at Target is going to help start her school year off right! I am now even more excited to be a Target REDcard holder!
Thank you Target for not only thinking of our children, but doing something to make such a huge difference in their lives! This sensory friendly clothing line <- click here to check it out Target is going to do much more for the Autism and SPD communities than just offer clothing!
