Organist with Autism Speaks Through His Music

David Kuhns practices.
ST. LOUIS -- David Kuhns has trouble finding words; he hesitates as he speaks. His attention span is short, his gaze drifts and he tends to wander away from the conversations of others after a few minutes.
Put him on an organ bench, though, and Kuhns, 38, is completely focused and at home. His tongue may have problems with words, but his hands are adept and at home on a keyboard. Kuhns has autism, and music is how he best expresses himself.
