The nature of twitter is that while living in Silicon Valley, I discovered a sensory friendly concert being held in Millersville, Maryland. Having been a part of sensory friendly movie viewing, awards ceremonies, and various other activities I had to take a look.
What I found was an interesting and inspiring link to a seventeen year old young lady named Nicole. Here is how she describes herself on her blog.
My name is Nicole, and I am seventeen years old. I have Asperger’s Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism. I also have synesthesia, which means I see music. I play 25 instruments, and I will try my best to keep an updated list of all of them somewhere on this blog. I am learning trombone and am posting daily videos charting my progress.
I was particularly moved by her father who I was able to watch perform in a You Tube video posted on her blog. They play “Chopsticks” together. What a great dad! You can find it here.
