Many thanks Debbie but since working on the combined Wiki page http://www.w3.org/WAI/PF/cognitive-a11y-tf/wiki/Gap_Analysis/non-vocal   I am afraid I have lost touch with the contents as I could not access it on Github - I am not sure if everyone wanted to keep it all together so hesitated to finish the work. 

Perhaps we should see what everyone feels, as I am very aware that there is a considerable amount of overlap with many of these specific learning and cognitive disabilities in terms of techniques and I am struggling to see how a developer could cope with all the information. 

There is a wonderfully clear break down of some of the issues at different levels on this games site. http://gameaccessibilityguidelines.com/basic

Hi E.A.,
I'm very grateful for your offer of assistance on the aphasia techniques, especially because when I took the action I said that I wanted to work with you. sI think you're probably more knowledgeable than I am about aphasia. My background is more in the area of technology for aphasia rehabilitation. 
I was thinking that the writeup would be just about aphasia, because I don't know too much about non-vocal, but do you think there's enough overlap in techniques that including both in the same discussion would make sense? 
Best regards,
Debbie

I am so sorry I sent apologies for not being able to attend to Lisa via the phone rather than the 'regrets' publicly - I must learn the right protocols.  

Debra – I saw in the minutes that you had an action to "add to techniques page on aphasia".  I am very happy to help where I can and to read any drafts.   However, I just wondered if this was building on the work we did amalgamating Aphasia with non-vocal?  Or whether Aphasia is being treated separately as it was when the work started? 

Best wishes

On the call today we had the following resolution:

This group will have 48 hours for people to object to proposals before they can be come resolutions. Every day decisions can be resolved on the calls,   Bigger/pivotal decisions to be ratified via the list.

Let me know if you object to this. We will give 7 days to respond because this is important.

All the best
