Autism & Clothing Discomfort

Updated: Feb 28

My clients tell me they get tired of what others might deem as insignificant discomforts that are getting in the way of their having a decent day. Some clients decide to use our coaching hours to zeroed in on the circumstances that are derailing good days.

Challenge: Uncomfortable Clothing

Having comfortable clothing options can be a big deal. Clients often find numerous uncomfortable clothing options and few “feel good” ones in their closet. Clients can tell the difference between several pairs of “identical” shirts, pants, shorts…any article of clothing.

As an example, inseams are not all sewn exactly the same and they notice. That slightly improper fit can become a preoccupation, making it difficult to concentrate during a conversation, when taking an exam, or completing a work task.

To get started with the closet do-over, we often decide which clothing brands have worked previously. We consider every article of clothing, including underwear and socks and sometimes even meet at the store to pick possible new selections.

Other Challenges

There are other obstacles such as bad hair, days, horrible noises or smells, and last minute changes to a schedule. We can identify challenges and find solutions to the things that CAN be controlled, at least to some extent.

On The Road To Better

Can we control everything? None of us can. But we can consider what we can change. Feeling more in control of your life made a HUGE impact.
