She confessed that at one time, she only vaguely recognised her stepmother after passing her while walking down a street.
“One of the things that quite often goes along with autism is Prosopagnosia, face blindness… there was an occasion where I was walking down the street and there was this woman who was vaguely familiar, I couldn’t place her,” Anne recalled.
“Hours later I remembered she was my stepmother! That can be embarrassing.”
