Carly's Voice: Breaking Through Autism
Arthur Fleischmann is the co-author of the bestselling Carly's Voice: Breaking Through Autism. When one of his twin daughters, Carly, was diagnosed with severe non-verbal autism at the age of two, Fleischmann and his wife began the lifelong battle for their daughter's chance at a more normal life. Then at the age of ten, Carly made a remarkable breakthrough. Working with her therapists, Carly typed, "help teeth hurt." They were the first words she ever wrote, but would certainly not be the last. Now as a sophisticated 17-year-old enrolled in gifted classes in a mainstream high school, Carly is still typing—and she's influencing a far-reaching audience of tens of thousands of followers on social media.
Originally from NY, Arthur Fleischmann is the co-founder and President of john st, an acclaimed ad agency in Toronto.
