Hairdresser Goes Above And Beyond For Young Customer With Autism

A South Carolina mom’s viral Facebook post is demonstrating the power of empathy when it comes to kids with special needs.

On Dec. 29, Jennifer McCafferty posted a photo that shows her 4-year-old son Isaiah having his hair cut while sitting on the floor of a Sport Clips salon in Charleston. In the caption, the mom explained that Isaiah has autism, so this hairstylist’s kindness meant a great deal to their family. 

“This woman, Kaylen, … did more for my heart than she will probably ever realize,” McCafferty wrote. “Haircuts with Isaiah are no small feat. He hates having anything near his ears, the sound of clippers sends him in to a tailspin.”

McCafferty explained that this particular evening at the salon was consistent with their past difficult experiences. “I was ready to give up, but she wasn’t,” she said. “She sat on the floor with my baby in her lap, and she cut his hair. They talked about Dory and Christmas, and she even let him spray her with her water bottle.”

Concluding her post, the mom shared a message on behalf of her family and others facing similar challenges. “Autism can be so very, very hard, but people like this make our days just a little easier,” she wrote. 

McCafferty’s post received nearly 95,000 likes and the Love What Matters Facebook page shared her story. The comments sections on both posts are filled with responses from fellow parents of kids with autism. 

McCafferty told The Huffington Post that Kaylen was a real lifesaver that day at the salon. When Isaiah had a meltdown, she went above and beyond to help him find “his quiet, safe space” in the midst of the overwhelming sensory stimulation.

“She wasn’t fazed by his screams; she understood his fears,” McCafferty recalled. “She figured out where it was he needed to go, which just so happened to be the floor, and she took him there.”

The mom said Isaiah has a “beautiful soul” and a warm heart. “He is everything that you would want your child to be,” she said. “He’s fun and full of energy. He’s sweet and kind, and ridiculously funny. He loves with everything he has.”

Isaiah’s love is especially boundless when it comes to his 6-year-old brother, Alex. “They have an amazing bond, and I credit Alex for a lot of the progress Isaiah has made with his social interactions,” McCafferty said. “Alex is able to comfort Isaiah when the rest of us can’t, and always seems to know just what Isaiah needs to soothe him.”

McCafferty told HuffPost she hopes Isaiah’s haircut story will bring hope to other parents of kids with special needs. “I want them to realize that even though it can feel like it, they are not alone,” she said. “I want everyone to see just how much love and kindness matter.”

Ladies Rise Above Your Emotions


Shenica Coleman shares the inspiring true story of how she overcame adversity in Ladies Rise Above Your Emotions (published by AuthorHouse). Women of all backgrounds will find empowerment and self-appreciation through this powerful new book. Ladies Rise Above Your Emotions stands apart from other motivational books because of Coleman’s aggressive approach to pointing out the threats in women’s lives. She also gives clear direction to overcoming life’s obstacles and helping readers reach their full potential. Coleman developed the majority of her insights from her real life experiences with domestic abuse, losing a child and her mother’s drug addiction. Coleman’s struggles were difficult to conquer, but they provided her with a new strength that she willingly shares with readers. Her determination to press past her hardships taught her to love herself first. Ladies Rise Above Your Emotions not only divulges Coleman’s personal story, but it also includes research articles, poems and interactive lessons. Coleman emphasizes why it is crucial for women to use their inner strength and reasoning to move forward and live life to its fullest. Her story points out the surprising similarities between women of all ethnicities, social class and beliefs. Coleman explains why women are more valuable than commonly given credit for and why they are critical in helping society advance its nurturing perspective. Coleman speaks candidly about her experiences and how they affected her life. Her first-hand account of losing a child to abuse is truly moving. She allows readers to step into her shoes and ultimately find the same strength from within. Shenica Coleman was born in Dayton, Ohio and is now enrolled in an accelerated college to earn her Master of Business Administration and a degree in psychology. She has seven children.

Beautiful Satellite Photos Show Our Fragile World From Above

Since the dawn of space travel, astronauts have tried to put into words the profound experience of viewing the globe as a tiny blue dot in a vast universe — dubbed the Overview Effect.

“When we look down at the Earth from space we see this amazing, indescribably beautiful planet — it looks like a living, breathing organism,” NASA astronaut Ron Garan said in the short film Overview. “But it also, at the same time, looks extremely fragile.”

Artist Benjamin Grant was inspired by descriptions of the Overview Effect to try and bring this vantage point to the rest of us non-astronauts. He created the photography project Daily Overview, which posts a satellite image each day that shows how human activity has impacted our planet, for better or worse.

“What I’m really trying to get across here is that we’ve entered an important time in human history where our home has been significantly altered,” Grant told Wired magazine. “When people see the images, they want to know more.”

See below for a selection of the Daily Overview’s images, and visit the project’s website and Instagram page for more.

Above and Beyond Official Trailer 1 (2015) – Documentary HD

In 1948, just three years after the liberation of Nazi death camps, a group of Jewish American pilots answered a call for help. In secret and at great personal risk, they smuggled planes out of the U.S., trained behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia and flew for Israel in its War of Independence. This ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war; they also embarked on personal journeys of discovery and renewed Jewish pride. ABOVE AND BEYOND is their story. The first major feature-length documentary about the foreign airmen in the ’48 War, ABOVE AND BEYOND brings together new interviews as well as stunning aerial footage to present a fascinating, little-known tale filled with heart, heroism and high-flying chutzpah.
