Son With Special Needs Freaks Out During Haircut Til One Stylist Refuses To Give Up On Him


0

Patrick Boyne has autism, which means getting haircuts can be extremely irritating — especially when he needed his first one at 2 years old.

“He couldn’t sit still in the chair. He didn’t like scissors. He didn’t like the contact. He didn’t like the noise,” Patrick’s mom, Amy Boyne, said. “Keeping him in the seat, I actually had to hold him down, and my husband had to help.”

Patrick was having a difficult time, but one stylist wasn’t going to give up on the boy. Sarah Beiser Eaton tried over and over again to figure out how to make Patrick comfortable until something finally worked. Now, eight years later, she is still regularly cutting his hair.

“It’s much better now,” Sarah said. “It used to be really hard. He moved around a lot. Mom helped. We would hold him down.”

Sarah calls his apron a cape, and Patrick is now much happier to wear it.

“I love kids,”  Sarah said. “I’m kind of quiet, and I think that helps instead of being overbearing and instead of being louder than them.”

Amy appreciates how calm and patient Sarah is with her little one. A haircut can make all the difference for Patrick sometimes.

“To have a child with a disability that can have a haircut that is just like every other kiddo — it’s huge,” his mom said. “It makes his appearance better. He looks better. He feels better. As he gets older, and the disability becomes more apparent, it’s those little things that kind of make a big difference.”
