Little City to present co-director of Soft in Chicago
Apr '10
Little City Foundation will present Ms. Suzy Kogen Friedman, partner and co-director of Soft, the first and only clothing line designed for children with autism and sensory sensitivity, on 21st April night at 7:30 p.m. on CAN TV 21 in Chicago.

"We're pleased that Little City has a strong network of professionals and industry thought leaders to call upon for this series to discuss all sorts of topics in the world of autism," commented Little City Executive Director Shawn E. Jeffers. "One of these intriguing topics is clothing for children with autism, and we're grateful to Suzy for sharing her story and helping to fill a need for parents who have children with autism."

For 13 weeks, Little City will feature experts and industry thought leaders such as Ms. Suzy Kogen Friedman in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities, and serve as a much-needed resource answering pressing questions related to the fastest-growing developmental disability affecting the nation.

"We believe in the mission of Soft and I'm happy to share my story and the options out there for families who have children with autism," commented Suzy Kogen Friedman. "I applaud Little City for their efforts in generating more autism awareness in the City of Chicago."

Ms. Suzy Kogen Friedman, a mom, entrepreneur and advocate for children and adults with Autism from Chicago, began developing Soft in 2007 with Founder Jessica Ralli, a special educator and graphic designer from Brooklyn, NY. Through extensive research, case studies and working closely with manufactures and experts in design and sourcing, she and Ms. Ralli discovered unique design principles and a way of constructing basic clothing less irritating to sensitive dressers and in styles appropriate across all occasions.

Soft is the first line of inclusive clothing designed with the needs of all children in mind, including those with sensory/tactile sensitivity, a common symptom of Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD and many Developmental Disabilities.
