Getting your child’s haircut

SNIPS - Sensory based haircuts for kids

shouldn’t make you want to SCREAM!

Initial Consult

I will come to your home and complete a sensory processing evaluation concentrating on the impact of sensory input with a haircut.  The appointments typically are 1 hour.  A haircut is completed during the initial evaluation.  A home program personalized to your child's sensory difficulties will be provided to improve your child's ability to maintain a calm state and accept sensory input during a haircut.  I will defer from cutting your child's hair if his/ her behaviors jeopardize the safety of him/ herself or myself.

 

Follow-up Appointment

Frequency of follow-up will be discussed at initial evaluation.  On average I recommend follow-up every 2 to 6 weeks depending on child's initial response to having his/her hair cut.  With each session there will be a gradual introduction of sensory input received during haircuts  and home program to support your child's transition to a salon or barber shop in your community.
