 +Invisible Disabilities Association Executive Board Member and Guest Entertainment for our 2015 Awards Gala, Derek Amato was on the Dr. Oz Show! 

Derek had a traumatic brain injury and was suddenly able to play the piano and compose.

He has what is called, Acquired Savant Syndrome. Derek is one of only 30 known people with this syndrome and the only one with an acquired musical talent. "Dr. Oz explains how experiencing a traumatic brain injury has given some people a remarkable skill they didn't have before."

Derek's sudden gift has been amazing! Nevertheless, it doesn't come without a price, as Derek also now lives with the "invisible challenges" of the injury such as not being able to turn off the music, as well as memory and sleep struggles. But Derek is using his newly found talent to help others!

Meet Derek on October 24th in Denver! www.HearingIsBelieving.info.
