Inspirational Stories – Carly Fleischmann, Autism
Yellow Day, releasing December 2015, is an innovative film designed to spotlight the inspirational figures and organizations within the special needs and disabilities community.
Autism is one of those conditions that renders itself almost unexplainable. There are obviously outward clues that someone has the condition, but they can often appear and display themselves so different from person to person that it can be hard to treat. Some things work for one, not for another. And often times communication is limited, or non-existent, which makes it hard for us to really know how to help, or what they are going through. Carly Fleischmann is the quintessential example of that. However, in one of the most amazing and inspiring stories we’ve ever seen, she found her voice. Check out the video above!
Not only this, Carly through her communication has opened our eyes to what it really means to live with autism. Her self awareness has helped us explain the tantrums, flailing, and head-banging so often associated with autism. And now, she has created a short film to help us see through her eyes. It’s remarkable.
