Inner Voice of Autism

thJust finished listening to “Carly’s Voice” by Arthur Fleischmann with his daughter, Carly.  Carly, unlike her twin sister, did not develop normally, and after a barrage of tests and consultations was determined to be developmentally delayed and mentally challenged – autistic, non verbal.

Having stumbled across ABA, Carly’s parents hired one-on-one therapists to work with their daughter, whose behaviours seemed to escalate out of control.  And then one day, Carly typed the word:  help.  What follows is important reading for families affected by autism and for those who work with them.

Carly has risen to become an important advocate for autism. She can be reached through her Facebook page, twitter (@CarlysVoice), or YouTube (Speechless with Carly Fleischmann).
