Joshua is gifted in many ways, and articulate these in his drawings really show he is talented. I applaud his parents for seeing and believing the gift in him, despite of Asperger's. Good job!

I am proud to have had Joshua as a piano student at Peery Piano. He is such a hard worker and never gives up. He is an amazing kid and what an author and artist! Way to go Joshua!
