Can you imagine not being able to recognize the faces of your closest friends and family if they changed their hairstyle, wore glasses, or perhaps put on a hat? Prosopagnosia is a severe face recognition deficit which is thought to impact two percent of the population. It can be found among children on the autism spectrum as well as others, and yet little has been done to inform parents, educators and other professionals on how to effectively support those with a facial recognition deficit. Nancy L. Mindick explains what prosopagnosia is and how its symptoms present themselves in children, and offers a bounty of ideas for more effectively including the child in family, school, and community activities. The author - a teacher who has prosopagnosia herself - offers specific, practical information for parents, teachers, child psychologists, and anyone wishing to support the learning of a prosopagnosic child.
