For kids with autism, getting a haircut can be an overwhelming, stressful situation. But for six-year-old Wyatt, his barber does whatever it takes to make him feel calm, even if that means lying on the floor to cut his hair.
Franz Jacob, a hairdresser in Quebec, Canada, is more than happy to work with young Wyatt to make the haircut process easy for him. He turns the loud music down, gives the kid a few spins in the chair, and moves around with him, which usually includes getting down on the floor to trim the boy’s hair.
Jacob says the key to his success is “patience and some love and a good pair of scissors. He adds, “If it’s for an autistic kid and I have to go on the floor, I will just do it. I don’t mind. I’m a barber, I’m supposed to do that.”
