      Yes, the definition of savant syndrome is a person with a severe developmental disability who has extraordinary abilities in one particular domain. This can include musical abilities, drawing, language learning, maths, and other skills. While this is extremely rare, savant syndrome is certainly fascinating and may teach us about the processes behind these abilities
