Derek Paravicini

Derek Paravicini and his twin sister were born 3 1/2 months premature. His sister did not survive and it was thought that he would not either.

Derek did survive however the hospital he was in was not equipped to administer the correct amount of oxygen he needed. It is believed that the overly high doses of oxygen he received caused his blindness and autism.

Derek cannot tell his right from his left. He cannot count to 10. Derek Paravicini plays the piano.
