The voices we often hear out in the autism community are the parents of those with autism. The Internet, however, has been a beautiful gateway to hear from those whom are autistic themselves – many who may be non-verbal but have found a communication outlet through writing. One of the many people sharing their story and experiences is Carly Fleischmann who is non-verbal but is able to talk through the use of a computer and tablet. She, with the help of her dad, created the following video that is a look at the world through Carly’s eyes – and how tough a simple act like going out for coffee can be for Carly.
The video is based on an excerpt from Carly’s Voice: Breaking Through Autism, which was co-written by Carly and her dad, Arthur. Carly’s message is a beautiful and simple one: “Everyone has an inner voice. I found a way to let mine out.”
