Just got through reading Carly’s Voice by Arthur Fleischmann (Carly’s dad) with Carly Fleischmann, and I highly recommend this book if you’re wanting to learn more about autism. Recently published, it gives another first-hand view of what it’s like to be autistic and wanting to communicate. If you would like to know more about this insightful book, here’s a short book review.
This book, along with I Am in Here by Elizabeth M. Bonker & Virginia G. Breen and all of Temple Grandin’s books completely dispel the belief which was prominent decades ago that non-verbal autistic children should be institutionalized because they would never be able to communicate or talk, as in Grandin’s case. Hopefully, more and more people will be educated about autism and dispel the myths which surround it.
