Treating for Lice

Daycare texted that son has nits. He was itching his head so much she took him to the doc office, and he most definitely tested positive. Best and fastest treatment possible, especially for a kid incredibly sensory defensive about his head?

Kid Zizzle really hates to have his head touched. Simple brushing with no snarls and pulling has him crying and writhing. Hair cuts have him screaming that scissors are for paper, not hair, and he doesn't want to cut hair, only paper --- and this is the kid friendly hair cut place with movies and all you can eat lollipops and a prize at the end. And regular hair washing? You'd think we were performing surgery in days before anesthetics.
We will be taking the precautionary approach and treating the entire family.
So, 1. Best and quickest treatments?
2. There is a lice removal salon not exactly close but not exactly far. It seems it'd cost us $150-$200 for all of us. Would it be worth it?
3. What do we need to with things like bedding, clothes, etc.?
