Shaving and Autism

I came across this video from RealLookAutism that shows how a young man with autism is learning to tolerate shaving with the help of his occupational therapist and his mother.  This is such a wonderful video that really helps to explain how sensory techniques can help some individuals to learn activities of daily living.  It also helps to demonstrate that certain skills can take a long time to learn but the goal is achievable.  The OT breaks the skill down, offers preparatory activities,  slowly introduces the shaving equipment followed by parent education helping this young man to be successful!
