Autism-Friendly Talk Show Day For Autism Awareness Month April 2013


My name is Carly Fleischmann and for as long as I can remember I’ve been diagnosed with Autism. I am not able to talk out of my mouth, however I have found another way to communicate. I do this by spelling on my computer and using an app on my iPad to be heard. The Autism spectrum is big and many people on the spectrum have many different problems but we all share one common problem of not always fitting in, in society. Today, if you ask a friend if they know someone with autism they will say yes, my best friend’s daughter, my neighbour’s son, my cousin or my brother or sister has Autism. The numbers are scary and awareness is starting to happen. Just this year a shopping mall used the first Autism-friendly shopping mall Santa. The Musical play the Lion King in NY put on the first Autism-sensitive play. The audience were all on the Autism spectrum and they all ended up loving the play. For many people with Autism, going to a movie, mall or even an event like a talk show is hard but not impossible. Thanks to “out of the box” thinkers like the promoters of the Lion King, people on the Autism spectrum experienced an amazing show, however, they also got to do what lots of people take for granted. They all were able to go out for the day and enjoy themselves in a big setting like atheater. This got me thinking. A lot of people with autism watch T.V and enjoy it. Why does a play have to be the only show that can be Autism-sensitive? So my goal is to get all of you to sign my petition to get The Ellen Degeneres show, The Doctors, Live! with Kelly & Michael, The View and Dr. Phil to put on the first ever all Autism spectrum-friendly show for Autism awareness month April 2013. My hope is that you will sign this and we can raise over 10,000 signatures showing support to this cause. Then hopefully, all four of these shows will see how important this is and will do a show with an audience filled with people on the Autism spectrum. A wise man once told me that when everyone is included in things we all learn but when we don’t include people, we all lose. It’s time for people with Autism to get the same opportunities in life that everyone else gets. It’s time for us all to learn and be educated. The times have changed and Autism is all around. It’s time for these shows to stand up and show their support and embrace Autism and differences and this April set a precedent that the world will never forget. It’s time for understanding. It’s time for everyone to learn. It’s time for differences to be accepted and it’s time for you to sign this petition. From your Autsim believer, dreamer and advocate,
Carly Fleischmann

    Love what you are doing here. My son has autism. He is 21 and we have barely been able to communicate his whole life, so you have given me hope. Thank you.
