Hoodie jackets for boys – In fabrics that are warm & sensory friendly
It’s that time of the year when there’s a nip in the air in many parts of India.
It might be a good idea to invest in a warm jacket for your child. There’s nothing to beat jackets so your child feels snug. Fabrics like cotton and fleece that are soft on the skin are great for all kids, especially for those on the autism spectrum or have specific sensory needs.
On NH Lifestyle we look at hoodie jackets for boys. Dhananjay or DJ, as this 17-year-old from Jalandhar with autism likes to be called, loves jackets with hoodies, says autism advocate and mom Anjali Dada.
“DJ feels comfortable in fabrics that are soft to the touch. He can manoeuvre zips with ease and likes simple jackets with hoodies. He prefers to use a hoodie rather than wear a cap separately”.
Featured are hoodie jackets in cotton and fleece priced under ₹ 1,200.
