      I have a child with autism and I find it a lot easier if we bring a gameboy. This may take the attention off of the haircut. I also use headphones so the load buzzing from the clippers don't bother him. If you communicate with the hair stylist they are very understanding. And if you can find a good stylist keep using her/him.
