Autism through Carly’s Eyes

May 19, 2012 at 4:48 by Martina Comments

I’ll be honest, I really don’t know much about autism and I’m ashamed to admit that I probably learnt about it only by watching Rain Man. So thanks Marc for sending this through. This video will hopefully open our eyes, and make us more aware of autism, a mysterious condition that affects an incredible amount of children.

The video is based on an excerpt from the book Carly’s Voice: Breaking through Autism, it explores how, for someone with autism, a simple act like going for a coffee can descend into chaos.

There is also an interactive website, Carly’s Café, a unique online experience that allows users to navigate a virtual café, with the same distractions and pressures that Carly would experience.

The initiative has been created by Canadian agency john st, whose President & Partner is Arthur Fleischmann, Carly’s father.
