As I child even in my early development I didn’t point and one of the reasons for this was Finger Agnosia (which also part of Gertsmann Syndrome which I have as apart of my Autism Fruit Salad). I had no idea that on the end of my palms where digits which I could use as a from of communication because I was “blind” to them so what helped me “recognise them”.
This is a personal overview and from my experiences
- Sensory Exploration (scrunching leaves, touching environment, painting with my hands)
- Sensory Play with Dad
- Pens and Pencils (giving me an awareness of through grip/pressure)
- Riding a bike
- Learning to get dressed
