I know that this is a blog about FASD,
but if you have been around very many people with FASD you already know that some tend to have a lot of Autistic traits. Some are even diagnosed with Autism. Take a look at Carly's video, it may help give you some insight to why our kids get so overstimulated.
Carly and her father wrote the book
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.
In Carly’s Voice, her father, A rthur F leischmann, blends Carly’s own words w ith h is story of getting to know his remarkable daughter. One of the first books to explore firsthand the challenges of living with autism, it brings readers inside a once-secret world and in the company of an inspiring young woman who has found her voice and her mission.
