Every so often I come across a little bit more information hinting at a connection between Autism Spectrum “Disorders” and psychic ability. A friend posted this on a forum recently about her 10 year old daughter “A” with ASD.
Yesterday “A” did the darnedest thing. She is having piano lessons and is just a beginner (after 2 years playing violin, she lost her confidence and gave it away). So, the teacher asks her to play the simple piece she gave her as homework. (Very basic with a backing CD). “A” played it, made no mistakes then said, “I have added an extra bit, can I play it?” The teacher said yes, and then her jaw dropped. It fit the rest of the backing CD perfectly. But what was even more amazing was that the teacher said, “I wrote this piece myself and “A” just played the bit I originally added, but took out because I thought it was too long for beginners. How did she know that? I am blown away!”
I suppose “A” could have picked up telepathically on the teacher’s thoughts re the music, or perhaps the structure of the music in the backing CD hinted at a “most likely” accompaniment. Either way, its pretty amazing!
