What are suggested treatments for someone who as agnosia?

My husband had a head injury and can not remember what things are.


Answer by  PZ (1206)

Label items that he uses frequently so he can read what they are even if he does not recognize them. Keep those items in the same place at all times.

Although there is no cure for agnosia, treatments such as occupational therapy or speech therapy may help in some cases. Treatment also depends on the type of agnosia and most commonly sufferers are treated by presenting information in a way that is different to the seemingly damaged sense (e. g auditory or visual)

Patients may better if data is presented in new modalities than the damaged one and occupational therapy or address therapy can do better on the treatment of agnosia.
