Free I Can Get A Haircut Autism Social Story: Boys Version: Pages 12
I have been creating a large selection of free social stories on Puberty and Personal Grooming. Receiving a haircut can be very traumatic for a child with autism. There are many sensory issues to overcome. There are many sounds, smells and people. The machines can be scary. The " I Can Get My Haircut Autism Social Story" was designed to help start a discussion with your child. By reading the social story, answering questions you can prepare your child for what may happen at the barber. My own son had difficulty with getting a haircut. We tried many things from IPAD, children haircutting salons, bribery , you name it. One day, by accident, we met a very young barber who took Niam under his wing. Before you knew it he had developed a relationship with Niam, became his friend. Niam even let him wash his hair! It is all possible. Don't give up. Every small step adds up! Use the social story to teach and review important skills.
Remember make it fun.
