    Dear Dr. Legoff,
    I am the mother of a 18 yr old with Aspergers.
    He graduated from a public high school online with a 4.0 GPA, served on the Teen Advisory Council
    for 4 years at our local Carnegie Mellon library and was a Teen Summer Reading Program Volunteer for 3 years and lastly also volunteers for the library tech club and Lego Mania. He is coding in Python, Ruby and JavaScrypt and has coded several learning games and a Math learning game app. He dreams of someday building learning apps for kids with Autism and Aspergers.
    My son just finished watching A LEGO Brickumentary and this is to let you know how incredibly inspirational Lego’s we’re to his formative years and truly important they are to kids on the spectrum.
    So greatful for your research work and support for our kids they are brilliant humanity with so much to offer our world.
    Lego leads the way into mainstreaming!
