Budehaven Uniform – Reasonable Adjustments for Students with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) or Sensory Concerns
Responding to parental queries regarding our new uniform we have been working hard to find suppliers of uniform alternatives for our students with known sensory processing issues.
By Monday the 25th June we expect to have an example of a soft collared, 100% cotton, light blue shirt.
You can find examples at www.eczemaclothing.com/school-shirts and, at the time of writing they are half price.
|Occupational therapy suggest that if a standard school shirt is worn then a soft, white or light blue, 100% cotton t shirt can be worn underneath.
We would ask that the t shirt not be visible.
|In addition we would also suggest shoes from the Clarks softer range as shown here:|
Marks and Spencer stock a range of easy dressing trousers recommended by Autism experts which can be found HERE at currently with 20% off.
They also stock seam free socks which have proven to be popular.
Some young people with SPD seek weight on their bodies, in which case the school jacket and/or jumper will provide this.
For those who prefer less weight then the jacket can be removed in classrooms to allow freer movement, your child need only ask the teacher.
However we would ask that jackets are worn while moving from lesson to lesson.
