Clothing can be a problem for a person with disabilities. Buttons, small sleeve openings, and other details of everyday clothing can be difficult to manage. These obstacles can be overcome through the use of adaptive clothing. Clothing can either be made or adjusted to better suit a person with a specific disability. There are also many companies who make clothing specifically for people with special needs. With the right clothing, individuals with disabilities can enjoy greater independence and increased self-esteem.
