5 consejos para cortar el pelo de niños con autismo

Cortar el pelo a los niños

Sentarse en una silla de peluquería puede parecer simple, pero para algunos niños, ir a la peluquería y cortar el pelo, puede resultar una acción bastante difícil. Son muchos los elementos que entran en juego: permanecer sentado, los espejos, el lavado de cabeza, el ruido, los olores, las luces…

Muchos peluqueros, ya han desarrollado sus técnicas para facilitar esta experiencia a los más pequeños, todos recordamos a James Williams, que enamoró a Facebook cuando se tiró al suelo para cortar el pelo de un niño con autismo.

Gracias a estos «5 consejos para cortar el pelo de niños con autismo e hipersensibilidad sensorial«, podemos conseguir que la experiencia de cortarse el pelo sea mucho más positiva para los pequeños, sus familias y también para los propios profesionales de peluquerías y barberías. Sólo tenemos que seguir estos simples consejos:

1. Ofrecer silencio.
Tratar de recibirlos en un horario tranquilo, fuera de hora o abriendo un día especial. Conseguir que la peluquería esté en silencio, para que los niños puedan tener un entorno sin estrés.

2. Moverse libre.
Dejar a los niños sentir que tienen libertad. Puedes elegir un peinado fácil y rápido para trabajar alrededor de ellos, sin forzarles a permanecer sentado, a lavarse el pelo o secárselo.

3. ¿Usar tijeras o maquinillas?
Enseñar el material que vas a usar y dejar unos minutos para que los niños se familiaricen. Puedes hacer un test para saber si es mejor utilizar tijeras o la maquinilla.

4. Anticipar.
Explicar a los niños que van a cortarse el pelo y decirles con qué persona. Anticipar los pasos que seguirán e indicárselos uno a uno. Puedes usar el cuento «José en la peluquería».

5. Personalizar.

Tener imaginación con cada niño. Cada niño es único y diferente. Cuando conoces a un niño con autismo, sólo has conocido a este niño con autismo. Para cada uno, puede ser una experiencia diferente.
