Step 1: Acknowledgment
Thank you for your interest in applying for membership to the Savant Artist Collective. Please read and acknowledge that you understand the following definition and that the following definition applies to you and your artistic ability.
Acquired Savant Syndrome is a condition in which dormant savant skills emerge, sometimes at a prodigious level, after a brain injury or disease in previously non-disabled (neurotypical) persons where few such skills were evident before such central nervous system injury or disease.
Savant skills are usually found in one or more of five major areas: art, memory, arithmetic, musical abilities, and spatial skills. Our Collective is for those with artistic abilities.
According to Darold Treffert, MD “We have seen now, several cases where after routine surgery or illness non-CNS related, there is “accidental genius.”
By providing your name and email below and checking the box, you affirm that the definition above applies to your situation and that your artistic ability was a result of "accidental genius."
