Haircuts can be challenging, even for those who don’t have sensory processing challenges!
From prepping kiddos for the overstimulating environment of the salon to taking along some preferred sensory activities to help them override the noxious stimuli of light touch or vibrating clippers, there are so many ways to make this process a bit easier, but one of the biggest takeaways from this episode is teaching parents, caregivers, and therapists how to communicate with and support the child through what can be a very scary experience.
While a lot of it has to do with these great sensory activities and strategies, a lot of it has to do with your emotions throughout this process too.
