Sensory Clothes: Clothing Items for Fidgeting and Behavior

Sensory Clothes: Clothing Items for Fidgeting and Behavior

Clothes are sometimes the hardest gifts for children to receive during the holiday season, but many parents still want their kids to have fun pajamas or outfits for when they go back to school. If you have a child with sensory disorders, you know dressing them in the morning can lead to fights and frustration. Children with sensory disorders often struggle with textures of clothing, tags, seams, zippers or buttons.

This holiday season, you want to find your child comfortable sensory clothes that reduces fidgeting and also provides soft material to help them stay comfortable throughout the day. Your child’s clothes could mean the difference in the classroom if they can’t attend and focus because of textures that bother them. Another great reason to find them the right types of sensory clothes for their sensory needs is that many of these items provide tactile-friendly features to enhance the sensory input they receive. For example, many of the items below have pockets for weighted items, fidgets attached or materials allowing them to chew on their clothes. These small attachments really help calm a sensory child’s body, which allows them to listen to the teacher and follow directions in school rather than being distracted by uncomfortable clothing.
