On the outside, Coco looks like a perfectly normal five-year-old girl: Cheery, vibrant, and full of life. With bright blonde hair and a winning smile, you wouldn't be able to tell that this little girl is coping with autism -- but now, she's making more progress with her condition than ever.
She began speaking at age two, but like many autistic children, she stopped talking entirely shortly after. For three years, she was totally silent -- until now, that is. See more of Coco's story (and learn about her path to living a more normal life) below.
She started speaking when she was two, but then stopped for the next three years.
