I just saw a news report on Carly, a girl from Toronto who is severely autistic. But now, suddenly after all these years, she has started typing on the computer in order to communicate. People thought she was mentally retarded but it turns out she’s actually a smart girl stuck in an autistic mind and body.
Check out her site. She is now on facebook, twitter, has been on Larry King, etc. etc… She said she’s working on a book too. She cannot get one word out of her mouth but she is fully communicative on the computer.
Modern technology rocks, ay?
