Prosopagnosia: “I Don’t Know Who My Parents are!”

During two sessions, you will learn how prosopagnosia ("face blindness") can be identified with those we serve—learners and adults.

Prosopagnosia (aka “face blindness”) is characterized by a deficit in the ability to recognize familiar faces. Children and adults with prosopagnosia generally have unimpaired acuity, IQ, and general memory ability, but struggle to recognize the faces of familiar family members, friends and coworkers.  As a result, prosopagnosia can have a severe impact on the formulation and maintenance of social relationships. Without proper screening tools in place, it may be decades before being identified, if at all.
