In brief: Neuropsychologist

I'd want 2 make sure 4 myself that this is face blindness vs difficulty reading emotions, which, as U know, is common for ppl w/ Aspergers,.
A neuropsychologist could help make this determination. But whether prosopagnosia or alexithyimia, helping the pt learn compensatory strategies is impt. Individually tailored strategies involving ppl & situations from their own lives work best.
