Spectra Sensory Clothing

BTEC Level 3 Business students completed their Digital Marketing Campaign unit in collaboration with Spectra Sensory Clothing.

All autistic clothing is designed for both autistic adults and children in mind. 

Made from soft cotton with a touch of lycra (for the stretch). Clothing has flat seams and no labels. Some children gain a feeling of security from wearing tight-fitting clothing and this can reduce anxiety and help to calm and aid concentration.
