Hi All, 
 
Information about the research conducted to determine WebAIM's guidelines for cognitive web accessibility, which included testing of students with cognitive disabilities and a literature review, can be found at http://webaim.org/projects/steppingstones/cognitiveresearch

Hi Lisa and All, 
 
The points Lisa makes are good ones. 
 
About the persona citation: 
I did receive permission from one the authors, Sarah Horton, to cite the persona in the Autism Gap Analysis. Is that sufficient to use copyrighted content? 
 
About the guidelines: 
I will contact Jared Smith, of WebAIM, to discover the sources of the research. Even so, it would be good to get feedback from the group about whether or not general guidelines should be used in a gap analysis for a specific disability. One reason I did was because it is my understanding we will eventually combine our analyses into a single set.

&gt; Hi 
&gt; 
&gt; I was having a look at the autism section of the gap analysis. A lot more content has been added - well done. 
&gt;   
&gt; Are we comfortable using  material from webaim articles as source information for guidelines for autism? The article in question talks about cognitive accessibility in general and does not site research. I am not sure we can site that as examples for the section specifically on autism. 
&gt; 
&gt; Also for the persona from UX magazine is copyrighted, so I suggest we 
&gt; remove it. (We need to be careful with directly copying.) 
&gt; 
&gt; 
&gt; All the best
