I have a 3 yr old and he has autism.we are having hard time for him to have a haircut.before i can wrapped my arms to him and the hairdresser can cut his hair while he is crying. But now he's getting bigger and stronger and he fights us.the owner said there is no way they can cut his hair when he fights us.what is the best way to have him a haircut? Thanks

This is a bit difficult as every autistic child is different, but you would know your child better than anyone. Is there anything that captures your child's attention or calms him significantly? I have seen parents use things like videos on portable dvd players or ipads to keep their autistic child distracted for things like doctors visits, etc. Maybe something like this would work??
