We all have personal development needs. Some are simple, some complex. Now imagine what it would be like if you were autistic and couldn’t even speak. This is the case for 16 year old Carly Fleischmann. But at 11 years old, something almost miraculous happened to Carly – she learned how to use a computer to communicate. Today her writing is spreading like wildfire around the web. She’s got her own blog and thousands of fans who follow her on Twitter and FaceBook.
Why so many fans? Because Carly’s giving us all an ‘insider’s’ view of what it’s like to live with autism. Check out what she has to say to Holly Robinson Peete on ‘TheTalk’.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arAgK-Sf2co&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]
