Candid interview

Carly Fleischmann is nonverbal, but she’s become the voice of autism awareness. We posted about her on January 22 (Inspiring Individuals) and then referred to her again on January 29th (The Dancing Barista).

This young woman, who uses a communication device, and gained notoriety when a video giving insight to how she processes the world went viral in 2012. It’s since been viewed more than two million times, and brought well-deserved attention to her book “Carly’s Voice.

Four years later, Fleischmann has launched a web series “Speechless with Carly Fleischmann,” which she hosts. In its first episode, released on Friday, she sits down with actor Channing Tatum to discuss growing up, his marriage and his greatest fears. It’s a wonderfully entertaining interview in and of itself, and we hope it will do wonders for spreading awareness for people who use alternative methods of communication as well as what people with a disability can accomplish if given encouragement and support.

Watch the first episode.


Can’t wait to see what she aspires to next.
