Carly Fleischmann is a 21-year-old woman with severe non-verbal autism. To show others that people with autism are capable of amazing achievements, Carly set out to become the world’s first non-verbal talk show host. She named the show Speechless with Carly Fleischmann, reflecting the viewer’s reaction as much as her own condition. The branding for “Speechless” is based on an impression of the keyboard strokes she makes to say the show's name out loud.
