School Uniforms / Special Needs

Everyone please take in to consideration the children with special needs. I know many of them. Some have sensory disorders and obsessions that a lot of us just don't understand or even know about. To the special needs child sometimes these issues ARE with their clothes. For example, they only want to wear red because it is soothing to them or a collar may feel like cut glass around their neck. To the rest of us uniforms are a great idea. They bring unity, acceptance, and focus on education not on apperance. To a few it will be one more way of how the special needs child will have to adapt, which sometimes can take a lot of work. Maybe a way to meet in the middle is let all of the children choose from three colors, pants and tops, also let them choose a polo or a plain t-shirt, maybe shorts or pants. Where is the harm in SOME freedom as long as they look nice and uniformed? Concerned for EVERYONE!!!
