I'm a special education teacher and have a 19-year-old daughter with Down syndrome. I love LCE! I've shared it with a friend who does stroke rehab at our local hospital. This is AMAZING. Thanks for your work.

My son, John, has gained so much confidence by using Look Cook and Eat. He regularly prepares dinner for our family, and the contribution he makes is so important -- to him and to the rest of us. John is well on his way to more independence and self-sufficiency, and LCE has played a significant role in that.
