ABA-Based Hair Cut Desensitization

There are many reasons why a child/teen may be overwhelmed by the demands of a hair cut. This 6 week program aims to desensitize clients to the tactile and auditory challenges of a traditional hair trim. Through gradual exposure clients will touch and explore scissors, buzzers, mirrors, capes, sitting still in a chair and other expected behaviours involved in a hair trim. Synergy Kids provides a safe environment for neurodiverse clients to express their emotions and insecurities in a judgment free space. Clients will be taught to use emotional regulation/ calming strategies through direct teaching, reinforcement, modelling and other ABA-based strategies. 

The first 4 sessions (Saturday Feb. 25, March 4, 11, 18, 2023) will be held inside Synergy Kids from 9-10am. Caregivers participate during each session as Ghazwan, owner and Salon Manager at TRENDY BARBERSHOP AND HAIR SALON, demonstrates his tried and true methods to ease children into a successful haircut. Ghazwan will demonstrate effective hair trimming techniques for parents to use during at-home hair trims using scissors, buzzers and other tools. Clients will practice the expected behaviours of a hair cut for 4 sessions inside Synergy Kids before moving to Ghazwan’s BARBERSHOP and SALON (4490 Fairview St. Burlington) for the final 2 sessions. March 25 and April 1st 9-10am Synergy Kids has the exclusive use of TRENDY to facilitate desensitization and practice receiving a hair trim. 

This group will begin with an ABA ASSESSMENT to identify the self-regulation and desensitization goals for each client. After 6 GROUP ABA THERAPY SESSIONS  caregivers will complete a brief survey to list their child’s improvements and accomplishments as a result of the in-person sessions. Parent participation in weekly sessions as well as the POST THERAPY EVALUATION are mandatory. OAP CORE CLINICAL FUNDING is applicable for this program.
