Haircutting Protocol

I wrote this protocol a few years ago to help a family whose 7-year-old son with autism was becoming increasingly aggressive when it was time to get his hair cut. We had great success using this program in the home. After 7 sessions, his mother was able to cut his hair while he played with his favorite play dough set. He never flinched or even looked at the razor while we played! Below is the description of the protocol as well as the data sheets we used to record his progress.
