I Don't Understand The Point Of This Autism Video by Carly Fleischmann

Let me make this very specific:
I'm an autism specialist. I have blog about autism as part of my job. I post useful information to the Montana Autism Education Project blog. But I'm having trouble understanding the usefulness of this video
as a teaching tool.
The video begins by saying, "Autism has locked me in a body that I can't control." Great opening, but the video ends by saying, "Everyone has an inner voice. I found a way to let mine out."
But the video does not show Carly letting her voice out. She gets frustrated and stands up in slow motion. It's a good perspective video, kind of, but it doesn't show how she changes her response to get coffee.
There are better videos that I can use for trainings that show what interactions/coffee shopsa are like for someone with autism spectrum disorder.
Am I missing something in this video that shows a person with autism using her voice/communication?
I know who Carly is.
