Joyeux! Heureux! Cheveux! Quebequois Barber's Kindness for Autistic Clients.

Barber-Franz-Jacob-Fauve-Lafreniere
The news has been pretty grim lately both in and out of the autism community. We're happy to share this story of how a barber is making haircuts - often a source of incredible struggle and angst - possible for families.    With the non-stop push to normalize autism and gloss over many of the challenges, this story helps people understand that even the most basic tasks can be mountains for us.  Merci beaucoup to Franz Jacob for his humanity.

This Canadian easily makes the cut as the most accommodating barber in Quebec for the way he makes haircuts bearable for super-sensitive children with autism.

A recent photo of the good-natured barber, Franz Jacob, shows him down on the floor with Wyatt, whose mother posted on Facebook praising the “everyday hero” for the care he gives his special clients.

The six-year-old is both hyposensitive and hypersensitive, so having his hair touched can feel unbearable, his mom, Fauve Lafrenière, told CBC News.

Jacob’s salon Authentischen Barbier is the only shop where Wyatt gets the welcome and sensitive care he needs.

Determined to get the job done, Mr. Jacob follows him around the salon with his tools—and kindness— so he can finish the cut.

I thought this photo looked a wee bit dangerous! Here's another idea for any who are still having problems - let your child grow his/her hair a bit longer and put it in a pony tail. Soon, we're all going to have to home educate to avoid vaccines, so there will be no-one to complain!

Well done Mr Jacob I know many parents who just cut at home as we did until we got him used to having hiss hair cut at home.Then we got lucky when we took him to the barbour who was very patient and insisted we took him back the next day to tidy up the haircut.After that he has got used to sitting and having his hair cut -phew!.
