Autistic savant Daniel Tammet’s amazing story

Daniel Tammet is known as the”Brain Man.” While we all know that each person is born with unique talents and abilities, regardless of any disability, Daniel’s story is truly inspiring.

Even though he has been officially diagnosed as a high functioning autistic, his gifts are incredible — both a mystery and a miracle at the same time.  In fact, how can we even say he is disabled?

To me, Daniel is simply a very gifted person — a genius in mathematics and language learning. Listen to this TVO video (by clicking on second video entitled “Brain Man”) and be inspired. He was able to stump the scientists and to learn Icelandic in a single week.

No wonder some autistics say they simply think “differently.”

H/T to Myriam and Ron who e-mailed me about this story. With my thanks.
