What others are saying
“Whenever we took my son to get his hair cut, he would scream and tremble in fear, especially when the barber would use the buzzers. It was an absolute nightmare for him and us. After working with a speech therapist at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to develop his language skills, our experience at the barber is completely different. My son is so calm and excited to get his haircut. Now that he has more language and we are able to communicate with him better he understands what is happening and is no longer afraid. We are so proud of him. He has come so far thanks to his speech therapist. Thank you for helping to make a difference in his life and therefore making a difference in ours!“
