A Connecticut mother of a non-verbal autistic teen has created a clothing line specially tailored to autistic kids. As a parent, Lauren Theirry knows the struggle of getting kids dressed in the morning; confusing labels, tags, and zippers. Her clothing line Independence Day Clothing offers functional and fashionable clothing that allows children and teens to dress themselves with confidence.
The clothing can be worn inside out, has no front or back and is stretchable with elastic waistbands and neck lines. The clothing also features GPS enabling. Theirry added the stylish and comfortable line is really meant to be worn by anyone.
