Saakshi Mahnot, currently an assistant manager with Future Group, worked on developing autism friendly T-shirts as part of her final year project at National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT), Called Deep Pressure Compression T-shirts for children with autism. Autism friendly clothing is not widely made in India and comes at a high cost.
As part of my graduation project, I had closely worked with institutions in Mumbai that reach out to children with autism. Based on a lot of research I developed ‘Deep Pressure Compression T-shirts’ for autistic children. They have been certified by doctors as well as tested on children with autism said Saakshi Mahnot, Developer, Compression Wear.
