‘Autism’ is one word but underlying autistic development and behaviour can be a ‘fruit salad’ of conditions. One of those is commonly Agnosias. Gnosia means ‘to know’. Agnosias are where the brain struggles to put meaning to incoming sensory information Understanding agnosias may demonstrate the wide diversity of autistic realities and challenge old and new stereotypes of autism and provide low cost and cost-free, easy to employ strategies for learning, bonding and behavior management, among other benefits.
