Clothing for Autism; Aspergers & Down Syndrome


I am an MA Design for Social Impact student at Paris College of Art. As part of my thesis, I am undertaking primary research to gain insights for my question: How mainstream clothing could become more inclusive. 

I would like to invite you to be part of this research by completing an online survey. I am particularly looking for females aged 25 to 45 with Autism; Down Syndrome; Asperger's Syndrome etc. to undertake this survey (friends/family members are welcome to answer on their behalf). 

The idea is to receive insightful answers from you that will let me know what the condition entails when concerning clothing. Your answers would help inform my thesis and later inform designs for potential adaptive clothing that will be manufactured. All answers are kept anonymous.

Please find the link to the survey: 

If you would not like to partake in the survey but have comments, please don't hesitate to comment below.

Thank you!
