Haircuts can be one of the most difficult common activities for children with autism.
Jamie Lewis and Denine Davies learned that with their son Mason, who was diagnosed with the disorder a few months ago.
The couple turned to barber James Williams to find the best way to overcome the sensory overload a haircut brings, TheMighty reports.
"Over last few month[s] I have been attempting to find different ways how to cut [M]ason's hair,” Williams explains on Facebook. "He wouldn't allow me to go near one of his ears. [H]e would run away on times if he wasn't up to it."
Williams finally decided to approach Mason on his own terms and dropped to the floor. The unique move was successful and Williams was finally able to cut young Mason's locks.
"I'm just glad [I’ve] been a part of the journey to put a smile on [their] faces," Williams adds. "Thank you for allowing me to help you guys. #barberlove."
After the cut, Williams asked Mason for a high five, but the young client responded with a hug.
