Giving Autism a Voice
Seventeen-year-old Carly first joined The Doctors in September 2012. Diagnosed with autism at an early age, Carly has since broken the barrier of autism’s mysteries and has been able to communicate how her brain processes the world. Her amazing story has helped struggling parents to understand the developmental disorder that is affecting an increasing number of children. Carly’s story generated tens of thousands of emails and Facebook comments from inspired viewers, including Amber, a mother who says Carly’s voice helped her to hear her autistic son in a brand new way.
