PFLUGERVILLE, Texas - He worked with his dad around their modest yellow house on Second Street, fixing up a newly purchased home in an old-fashioned, close-knit neighborhood - the kind of place where residents checked in on one another. Mark Anthony Conditt seemed to fit in. The 23-year-old was used to being around his parents, having been home-schooled.

Jordie, who has autism, struggled with his parents to run back outside the moment he got in the shop, which is in Brisbane, Australia. McKenzie ended up walking around the barber shop with Jordie that day two years ago, even lying on the floor with him. She got in a few snips but stopped the haircut when she saw that Jordie was agitated. The stimulation of a haircut can be painful and terrifying for some children with autism. Jordie was no different.
