Get a Haircut!

Currently lost in admiration for Welsh hairdresser James Williams

…who has founded ABA (the Autism Barbers Assemble!).

“Sitting in a hairdresser’s chair may sound simple, but for a child with autism having a haircut can be painful. One barber has developed a unique technique where he will cut a child’s hair during long periods while sitting on the floor, on window sills or even in the car.”

Please now read the full story (guaranteed to bring a smile) in this news report from BBC Wales  

On a serious note, we are fully aware that having a haircut can be a traumatic experience for people with a learning disability (and for carers and parents). here’s hoping the ABA’s ambition of creating a UK-wide network of empathetic hairdressers comes to fruition.
