Seamless, Soft Clothing for All Children
We've all experienced the annoying, scratchy tag on our clothes that begs to be cut off. This is minor compared to what some children experience. As published in the American Journal of Occupational Therapy, Tomcheck and Dunn write:
Overresponsivity to tactile input also has been reported in the literature (Baranek, Foster, & Berkson, 1997; Cesaroni & Garber, 1991; Grandin, 1995). In firsthand accounts, touch has been described as an intense feeling that can be overwhelming and confusing (Cesaroni & Garber, 1991). Grandin (1995) noted that certain clothing textures could make her extremely anxious, distracted, and fidgety. Children with higher levels of tactile hypersensitivity in one study also were more likely to display inflexible behaviors, repetitive verbalizations, visual stereotypies, and abnormal focused attention (Baranek et al., 1997).
Soft Clothing for All Children
has a solution for those that suffer from sensory issues, as well as typical children who just want soft clothing.
We were sent the the Soft Sensory Tee:
Perfect for children with tactile sensitivity, this is a reinvention of the classic T shirt. Now with special adaptations for comfort and style--for extra sensitive dressers. Made with 100% Soft cotton, constructed with flat seaming (for a seamless feel), a flat, wide fit bound collar (to prevent pulling at the collar), printed label and care info (tagless), and a classic t-shirt silhouette. Not too boxy, not too tight. Tested with children with sensory sensitivity. Colored with natural and enzyme washed for an extra soft finish. (UNISEX)
The only way this shirt would be better is if it was made from organically grown cotton. I am also not sure why it requires gentle cycle laundering.
