DD with sensory issues and school trousers

(23 Posts)

I'm at my wits end. It has always taken ages to find trousers that she's comfortable with. X has, in the past, given me the money to get them but this year flatly refused and ordered some online. Dd loved them because they were soft and close-fitting. Her school have now said they're too tight and have said she needs to change them. Easier said than done. Told x and he still won't give me the money (has done for the past 8 years). After 4 more incidents of only ordering online, I thought she'd got a pair.

FFW to tonight she's tried them on again and is really upset because they feel huge on her. I have explained why but I can't get it through to her. Don't know what else to do sad

How old is she?

Has she got a formal diagnosis relating to her sensory issues? My school would allow adaptations to uniform if there's documentation to back it up.

Could she wear leggings under the trousers so that it still feels soft and her?

AuroraNinjaMama Sun 24-Sep-17 21:36:28

I don't know how to tag names sorry

Could she wear tights and a skirt or pinafore instead?

AuroraNinjaMama Sun 24-Sep-17 21:38:39

She's 12.
Her head of house has been great, given us plenty of time.
Leggings will make. Her too hot sad

Tights under trousers

Cycling shorts under them?

Dd had some that were soft jersey cut in bootleg. Think they came from Tesco's

Asda George has jersey bootleg trousers. Elasticated waist, no buttons or zips to create sensory issues.

Straight leg, not bootleg sorry

Opaque tights under trousers and cut off the feet if she doesn't like the feel of them on her feet.

M&S do a skin kind uniform, my DS used to wear it when he had severe excema. Might be worth looking at. Or have a google for other uniforms designed for excema prone skin.

PosiePootlePerkins Sun 24-Sep-17 21:59:37

Any good?

HailLapin Sun 24-Sep-17 22:00:47

Are her school really so unsympathetic? Does she have a statement op? I think they're being unreasonable.

PosiePootlePerkins Sun 24-Sep-17 22:01:52

Or these? Possibly a bit pricey.

M&S do an 'autistic friendly' range of uniform

Gileswithachainsaw Sun 24-Sep-17 22:06:16

Oh ffssad

Why is hiding a body shape preferable to a child being comfortable and in school.
Poor dd

Stupid uniform bull shit

AuroraNinjaMama Sun 24-Sep-17 22:26:15

Thank you everyone.
I'm sorry for stilted answers, dd not asleep yet.
Jersey material isn't allowed and the trousers have to be tailored.
She won't wear tights under them either - that was also a flat no.

Thank you so much for the links - I will look properly tomorrow.

AuroraNinjaMama Sun 24-Sep-17 22:27:56

My message hasn't posted sad it took ages to write

AuroraNinjaMama Sun 24-Sep-17 22:28:53

Now it appears. Have to love a slow connection

chipscheeseandgravy Sun 24-Sep-17 22:30:46

What about Lycra (or similar) running trousers underneath regular school ones. They aren't massively thick, but are lovely and soft and tight fitting depending on the ones you get.
Alternatively marks and spencer do a autistic range that's meant to be very good.
