This Blind 3-Year-Old Plays Piano Better Than Most Adults

Little Branko Dvorecky, at age 3, already plays the piano better than his father, 37, who’s been practicing for ten years, according to Express UK.

The precocious child from a small village near Bratislava, Slovakia, was born blind and started hitting notes on the piano when he was 2. Despite never having had a piano lesson in his life, Branko learned his favorite cartoon songs by ear and now plays everything from pop songs to excerpts from Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Bach. His mother calls him a “gift from God.”

“When I first found out he was blind I was terribly sad and a little bit angry,” Elena Dvorecky, Branko’s mother, told Express. “But now I think he is a real treasure.”

Remember the name Branko Dvorecky, because this gifted child is sure to do something incredible with his talents one day.

I Used to Pray I Wouldn’t Have a Special Needs Child

I never thought I’d be a special needs mom. In fact, the thought of that used to absolutely terrify me. I remember reading about all of the things that can go wrong when we were trying to get pregnant, and just begging God to give us a healthy child. Praying that I’d rather have no [...]

How Should You Picture a Kid With Disabilities? This Way.

When strangers used to ask Rachel and Sam Callander what was wrong with their daughter, the parents offered a lighthearted explanation: superpowers. At the time, Evie Callander, who was born in 2008 with a rare chromosomal disorder, clearly experienced the world differently than other 2-year-olds. Certain sensations — the sound of electric sliding doors, for example — [...]

The Best Part of Special Needs Parenting. No, Really.

A few months back, I got an email asking a few of us special needs moms to share the gifts of special needs parenting. The responses would be published, and the world would probably be a better place. I like to see my name in lights as much as anybody else, but I looked over at my autistic son [...]
