Connection: Music & The Blind Autistic Boy

Here’s Jacob, an eight-year-old blind autisic boy making a connection with music and a good natured, bushy beard, tatooed busker in Lawrence, Kansas. In the screen capture to your left, Jacob’s mum rests her hands on his shoulders and asks the busker if Jacob can touch the guitar. The busker nods his head in agreement as he continues to sing and play.

I love the way Jacob edges closer to the busker and rests his hands on the guitar. And watch what happens when the busker speeds up the song.
