Autistic Girl Communicates Via Computer

This is a fascinating look into the life of a girl with autism.  Carly has no spoken language, and, until she was 11, was thought to be mentally deficient.  But she began to express herself through a computer keyboard, and her family and therapists were stunned to discover the girl inside.  If you're interested in a longer version of her story, click here.  (The audio is out-of-sync and it is nearly ten minutes long, so it requires a bit more perseverance to watch, but it is more in-depth, and very interesting.)
