Like many children with Autism, Sam hates to have his haircut. It puts him on sensory overload. His school has done something brilliant (which is nice because on a few other issues I have a list of complaints). One of their former employees (I think she was a classroom aide) work in a hair salon. She comes to the school twice a month. Parents, for a small fee, can sign up for as many haircuts as they want their child to get. The children then get their haircut in school with their teachers and aides on hand. The new photo of Sam is with his hair freshly cut. One less thing to try to do around the house!
