Marks & Spencer Launching Autism-Friendly School Wear

The National Autistic Society are delighted to have teamed up with Marks & Spencer to support the development of their brand new ‘Easy Dressing’ school uniform collection. It’s available for sale from 1 August, but you can already sign up to register your interest on their website.

Following a product development campaign called ‘Inventors Wanted’, M&S received lots of feedback asking them to do more for people who struggle with clothing – especially children on the autism spectrum. After consulting with professionals working with autistic children, they decided to develop an ’Easy Dressing’ school uniform range. The charity was thrilled to be approached by M&S to work with them to develop the clothing.

As well as working with the charity to develop the range, M&S will also be donating 10% from every item sold to The National Autistic Society.
