Ditto from me Debbie, that was kind of you and put it all in a nutshell. 

Many thanks.

Hi Steve,
Thanks for the suggestion - I've put them on Slideshare -- http://www.slideshare.net/dadahl/web-accessibility-for-people-with-cognitive-disabilities.

Deborah, could you put the slides up somewhere public? I'd love to share them.

The accessibility hackathon (evoHaX) where I spoke a few days ago went very well. There were five teams from local universities participating and you can read the report on what they came up with at http://technical.ly/philly/2015/04/21/5-local-colleges-hacked-web-accessibility-evohax/. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend the final presentation of the projects, but if I find out more information about what they came up with I'll post that.
Also, here's my presentation, if you're interested. It's a pretty generic, awareness-raising presentation, aimed at a general technical audience. Thanks to John Rochford for the pointer to ClearHelper. The picture on slide 7 is what is in my opinion a really terrible website from the point of view of cognitive accessibility, with popups, a lot of extremely distracting advertising, and a tiny font for the very small amount of actual content.
Feel free to reuse any of the slides for your own talks if you think they would be useful -- let me know if you'd like the PowerPoint version.
