Background info on Carly:
Carly Fleischmann is a 21 year old from my hometown (suburbs of Toronto) who has severe non-verbal autism. As a child, her behaviours were so extreme that she showed little improvement through rigorous therapy. When she was 13, she accessed a computer and wrote the words "Help me". From then, she became a breakthrough into the understanding of people with autism. She then went on to describe the overwhelming sensations she feels and why does does certain behaviours. She is proof that many non-verbal people on the spectrum with severe physical behaviours have normal cognitive development.
She is so beautiful and such an inspiration. Her questions are hilarious and she has zero filter. She's hoping to be the first non-verbal special needs talk show host.
