A beautiful bond has been formed between Barber Lisa Ann McKenzie and 12-year-old Jordie, a local boy with autism. 

Jordie has always severely struggled with getting a full haircut, until Lisa Ann decided to sacrifice her time to open up the barbershop late in order to learn more about what the best way to cut Jordie’s hair was. 

Fast-forward 2 years and a lovely video has been captured of Lisa singing to Jordie as he comfortably sits and interacts, which has been a major improvement from his first haircut. 

This video has since gone viral and has raised much awareness about autism.

Leroy had a chat to Lisa Ann as she further shares her experience with Jordie.
