Barber Goes The Extra Mile To Conquer A Little Boy's Fear Of Haircuts

November 6, 2015

Because of sensory overload, haircuts are often difficult and even painful for children with autism.

James Williams, a barber from Port Talbot, Wales, had been trying to find a way to cut little Mason's hair for over a month with no success. Mason was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder a few months ago.

"But today," he said, "I finally achieved it."

Mason never allowed James to get near his ears and would often run away. It wasn't until James laid down on the floor with him that he was able to give Mason a proper trim.

James wrote on Facebook:

"We both layed on the floor in silence & he allowed me to cut away & give him his first proper haircut, again achieving something in a job I love making both parents happy by giving extra attention to mason by building a friendship at trust with Mason & myself."

And after a successful cut, when Williams asked for a high five, Mason took things to the next level and offered James a hug.
