Sensory Fashion Workshops

Sensory Fashion Workshops

The purpose of FHA’s 3-step sensory fashion workshops is to uplift children and teens diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder to include building confidence and social skills needed beyond the classroom.

Fashion Honors Autism’s unique sensory fashion workshops provide environments that tackle common issues children living on the spectrum may face, including:

  • Self-image and isolation based issues that can arise as they grow up with the disorder
  • Confusion and misinterpretation of sensory needs as “bad behavior”
  • Personal Development.

In our sensory fashion workshops, FHA staff and model mentors work on solutions to these common issues by exposing them to careers in the fashion industry that may interest them, and offering one-on-one mentor relationships with professionals in the industry.

Model mentors work with mentees on the 3 basic levels of modeling which are walking the runway, posing and styling. 

 

As a 501(c)3 non-profit, Fashion Honors Autisms relies on a small army of volunteers, partners, donors, and sponsors to achieve our mission. Our Mentors & Mentees are the heart of our program. Please check out the many ways you can get involved!
