Stylist in the US will give haircuts to kids with autism
Wendy Williams, a hair stylist in Michigan, United States, has started an initiative for kids with autism. She will give haircuts every Sunday to those on the autism spectrum.
She has arranged for her salon to be made sensory-friendly on Sundays. This means no loud noises, dim lights and keeping a calm atmosphere.
This is because loud noises and bright lights are known to make children with autism feel nervous and stressed out.
To make the sessions more enjoyable, she also plans to hold storytelling sessions.
