Carly's Café uses interactivity as a way to have people actually experience what it's like to live with Autism. By giving people control of the site and then slowly taking it away, we mimic the lack of control over their body that a person living with Autism feels every day. By helping people better understand this mysterious disease, it helps to reduce the stigma and dehumanization directed towards those living with Autism.

The site was shared at the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities in 2012, and helped the book, Carly's Voice: Breaking through Autism, become a #1 best-seller in Canada. In the book, Carly's description of how she feels in a café was the inspiration for the site.
