M&S launches clothing range for children with disabilities

Section: Kids' Fashion

Marks & Spencer has launched an 'easy dressing' range, specially designed for children with disabilities. This is great news for the parents of children with sensory or physical disabilities who often struggle to find appropriate clothing.

The new Autumn/Winter range hopes to make it easier for children to take their clothes on and off and they feature the same designs as their standard kid's ranges, meaning children with special needs can wear the same clothes as their siblings or peers.

The range includes clothing with discreet pockets designed for feeding tubes as well as trousers with space for nappies. They are made from super soft materials and feature minimal seams and hidden care labels to minimise irritation for children with sensitive skin.

The adapted range also features handy velcro strips and simple poppers, all of which aim to make it easy to change quickly and comfortably. This range is groundbreaking as it means that children with down syndrome, in crutches, wheelchairs, and all different needs are catered for, for the first time by a high-street retailer. 

M&S Online said: "There are around 1.5 million children in the UK who have a sensory or physical disability. So, after talking to parents and experts, we've developed an easy-dressing range for kids that's fun to wear, plus the designs are the same as our standard range, so kids have the choice to wear the same cool clothes as their friends or siblings".

Marks & Spencer released beautiful promotional images alongside the range featuring a wide spectrum of children with disabilities. The launch has prompted praise for Marks & Spencer's for their attempts to improve diversity.

If you didn't think it could get any better, the clothing line is great value for money, ranging from £2.50 to £26 and can be purchased online here.
