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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! It was a roller coaster ride for me, reading this for two straight days. There are moments when I need to stop and think because some of the mysteries behind my brother's actions and behavior has been explained thoroughly - from Carly herself who is herself, diagnosed with Autism. I learned a lot from this book - it made me contemplate more about my brother and how I, a sister, should be rooting and helping him every step of the way. Please do read this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from must read whether or not you have been affected by autism in your life Carly's Voice was one of those books that makes you look forward to going to bed. The story of how this little girl and her family triumphed over such challenges with super human perseverance and will is motivation for anyone to overcome any type of life challenges or goals/dreams for themselves. The manner in which it is written is down to earth, humorous and humble which humanizes the story despite the extreme circumstances. Carly is an inspiration to us all - the amount of work and dedication she puts forth in this world is admirable and I could only hope to achieve a smidgen of what she has done. I hope book #2 will be soon to follow!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Inspiring Must Read This is a phenomenal story, everyone needs to read this book whether affected by autism or not. Arthur does a fantastic job sharing his side from a Father's point of view, gut wrenchingly honest and overflowing with pride. Carly is the voice of autism, she is a gift to all of us parents who are looking for answers on what our children are experiencing and her pursuit to bring autism to the public conversation is something we should all appreciate! I couldn't agree with her more, we have to believe in our children and keep working with them to help their voices be heard, however they manifest themselves. Thank you Arthur and Carly for sharing your story with the world!
