Come Over To My House by Sally Rippin, Eliza Hull, Daniel Gray-Barnett
This delightful picture book is a must-read for all families as it explores the home lives of children and parents who are living with disability.
Skims Adaptable Collection
Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian’s shapewear and loungewear brand SKIMS launched its new adaptive collection for people living with disability or limited mobility. The range features different types of underwear in a range of sizes and colours to suit different skin tones. The easy-access hook and eye fasteners are features on the front or sides of the garment, offering an easier way to take off or put on than normal designs.
EveryHuman’s BILLY Footwear
EveryHuman is a popular inclusive and accessible fashion label featuring trendy collections for adults and children. The BILLY Footwear collection was founded by Billy Price, who sustained a spinal cord injury after a three-storey fall. Billy’s lived experience was the inspiration for the BILLY Footwear collection. He wanted shoes that were easy to wear, but also matched his style and were trendy. Today, the BILLY Footwear shoes utilise a zip along the entire side and front of the shoe making it easier to put on and take off than a regular shoe. They are available in a range of sizes, styles and colours to suit almost anyone.

It also features an AI assistant that is completely voice controlled making hands-free the new norm.
