The Voice for an Entire Community

Carly Fleischmann and her
father Arthur Fleschmann.

Carly Fleischmann's parents knew something was off about their daughter almost immediately after she was born.
She looked a little different than her twin sister and she wasn't reaching the same milestones, such as flipping over, sitting up or crawling.
She would eventually reach those goals, but there was one hurdle she couldn't overcome: learning to talk.
While she still can't communicate verbally she has become the voice for an entire community, and her new book, "Carly's Voice: Breaking Through Autism" (Touchstone), which she helped write alongside her father, Arthur Fleischmann, helps explain their journey.
