In this international bestseller, father and advocate for Autism awareness Arthur Fleischmann blends his daughter Carly’s own words with his story of getting to know his remarkable daughter—after years of believing that she was unable to understand or communicate with him.At the age of two, Carly Fleischmann was diagnosed with severe autism and an oral motor condition that prevented her from speaking. Doctors predicted that she would never intellectually develop beyond the abilities of a small child. Carly remained largely unreachable through the years. Then, at the age of ten, she had a breakthrough. While working with her devoted therapists, Carly reached over to their laptop and typed “HELP TEETH HURT,” much to everyone’s astonishment. Although Carly still struggles with all the symptoms of autism, she now has regular, witty, and profound conversations on the computer with her family and her many thousands of supporters online. One of the first books to explore firsthand the challenges of living with autism,Carly’s Voice brings readers inside a once-secret world in the company of an inspiring young woman who has found her voice and her mission
The father of a child who was diagnosed as severely autistic at the age of two describes the intensive therapies that were pursued before young Carly had a breakthrough at the age of 10, when she began using her computer to communicate and reached out to thousands of people on a blog, Facebook and Twitter. 75,000 first printing.
