Publisher Description

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

Carly's Voice

Awesomeness!!! Just like Carly! This book has given me so much more hope! So much more energy to keep going with helping my daughter when there have been times that I feel we had no hope. So much more to think about the alertness we need to have when they are in someone else's care, in regards to their safe being. This family is truly blessed to have all the support they have and the amazing daughter that has proved to all of us that there so much more we CAN do to help! Her sister and brother are amazing to always have been there for their sister without looking at her as the "Cinderella" of the family! God bless you all and keep on amazing you and us with more great achievements from our beautiful "elephants"! :)
