Here are some suggested organisations that offer expert advice on SN.

So today DS2 took himself to the barbers for the first time..

And he came back nearly bald sad

I should be proud of him.. I AM proud as he has autism and learning difficulties and is nearly 17 and this is a huge step towards independence. He walked in himself, got the right money out, said he wanted his hair cut...

But his hair looks bloody awfulsad (I haven't said that obviously!) He has a long thin face and rather big ears and needs a bit of hair. He now has a grade 2 up the sides and about 2 inches max on top. NOT a good look.

I know it will grow, but Whaaaaaaaa sad

Yay!! What a massive achievement though Medusa, it doesnt really matter what it looks like, he did it by himself and you gave him the skills to do that!!

It will grow out, the same as Dd2's orange hair will eventually end up back to its normal colour after she peroxided it and then put a brown dye over the top, bless her.

Experimenting with hair styles and colour is actually very "normal" at 17, so well done to your Ds smile
