We use the messaging services provided inside the email provider, which is okay. I have worked with Slack before and I'm a fan, like your son it's easy for me to communicate like this. I tend to polish emails a lot and spend a lot of time deciding on words and commas, I don't know if it's the same for him.

Ah, it's the same for me! No, my son's difficulties are at a different level. Having to write an email usually triggers a meltdown. If he manages to hold it together and actually writes it, it's extremely terse. Social anxiety is his worst enemy.

MS Teams is just about perfect. If their markdown rendering applied code colorization it would be perfect.
