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!

  • Another reason to love Target! The clothes sound great. So wonderful that Target was so supportive when they were informed of a need for this type of clothing!

  • I know a few kids and moms that will be appreciating these! I haven’t heard that this was available so I need to let them know in case they didn’t as well!

  • What an awesome thing for Target to be doing, I really hope it helps kids who do have issues with sensory processing!

  • That is absolutely awesome from Target! The clothing sounds and look great and hopefully they will benefit those with sensory processing!

  • makeamomsmile -

    This is so great! Way to go Target! I wonder if they have socks that are “pokey”. That is my daughters biggest pet peeve the socks, well and jeans too but we just avoid those all together

  • Yes, another reason to love Target! My son has autism and sometimes clothes bug him, so I’ll have to try these out.

  • Claudia Krusch -

    This sounds like a great clothing line. It will be a huge help for so many family’s.

  • Finally! This makes me happy, as more brands should create clothing that will make an Autistic kid feel less anxious. I like the designs and love the cause even more x

  • TheMomKind -

    They haven’t released any yet, but they are planning to further the line so hopefully they will. My daughter just avoids wearing socks. Yes, that does end in horribly stinky boots in the winter lol!

  • TheMomKind -

    They only have a few shirts for boys in the line so far, but I love that it’s a start. I can’t wait to see what they bring out next. Hopefully some shorts or jeans that are sensory friendly 🙂

  • Robin Rue -

    They always have such a great line of clothing. I need to check out some of their new stuff.

  • TheMomKind -

    Not yet. They do have several adult ones made from very soft material with heat pressed labels, but they still have the regular seams in them. They plan on launching more items, so I am very curious to see what they come up with!

  • agentizerozerosetter -

    Love this line by Target, finally a company that is big also for its ideas covering different needs!

  • That’s cool that Target is releasing more of this line of clothing. I know I have a hard enough time with the designs of some clothes that there are. But people who are extra sensitive to sensory input this would be awesome.

  • I think it is great that Target started a sensory friendly line of clothing. This is a plus for all those parent that have kids with sensitivity to clothing or touch even. Thanks for sharing the information.

  • I love these! They are all great designs, and who doesn’t love Target! It’s great to see that they came out with a Sensory Friendly clothing line! We’ll have to check it out, thanks for sharing!
