Checking In With Carly.

Carly update.

I discovered Carly back in April of this year. (click here for a link to my blogpost.) She had joined twitter and started following my tweets. She really has an amazing and inspiring story. John Stossel and John McKenzie recently did a story on her progress for ABC's 20/20. I thought it was interesting that Carly has so much to say, but is still shy about typing around new people. It was also insightful that her father had to apologize somewhat for having talked around Carly as if she did not understand before she started typing and demonstrated that she has a keenly observant intellect. Enjoy her story. We can really learn from her insights, although I think that she is the exception and not the rule for children with autism.
