Carly Fleischmann was diagnosed with autism when she was two-years-old, along with an oral motor condition that stopped her from speaking. As she got older it became clear to her parents exactly how severe her autism was. Despite thousands of hours of one-on-one therapy, Carly was unable to speak even a single word. But then, when she was 11-years-old, Carly sat down in front of a computer for the first time. What happened next was a breakthrough for Carly, and allowed her to escape from her singular, silent world. She has now become something of an ambassador for children with autism all over the world.
