It was within months of being born that Carly’s parents noticed there was something different about her since she was not reaching milestones in her life as fast as her twin sister. It was when she was two-years-old that she was diagnosed with autism. She was non-verbal and trapped inside of her own body. But it wasn’t until years later and after endless hours of intense therapy, that Carly found her voice through a keyboard.
Watch this amazing trailer to Carly’s new book, Carly’s Voice, co-authored by her father, Arthur Fleischmann, as she describes what it’s like being a young person living with autism, and how she’s striving to be an advocate for other children just like her who have been diagnosed with autism but just haven’t found their voices yet. Carly is raising awareness for autism and her story has caught the world’s attention — now it’s your turn!
