Carly Fleishmann is a fourteen year old girl who is mute and autistic. Many people thought she was mentally deficient or "retarded". Uncommunicative until age eleven, Carly showed the experts, and the world around her, that a bright mind lived with the autism. Her voice broke through the autism. Carly was there and keenly aware all along! As Carly said, her brain was wired different. In the video below we are shown, once again, not to ever discount or write off any person. Note at the 7:00 minute mark in this video profile of Carly she explains many of the behaviors and habits of people with autism. At the end of the video she says to others who have autism or are otherwise uncommunicative, "Don't give up. Your inner voice will find a way out. Mine did." Carly has something to teach us all.
