I, Carly

Carly Fleishmann is a teenage girl who was diagnosed at age 2 with severe autism and cognitive delay, as well as a disorder called oral motor apraxia, which left her unable to speak

Then, one day, when she was 11, something remarkable happened 

Her story was chronicled on ABC's 20/20:

Carly, once considered beyond help, ended up attending a mainstream high school (and enrolled in their gifted program), is active on social media, and even co-wrote a book with her father, Arthur, about her experiences. 

There would seem to be a lot to learn here for each of us.
