 Overview: Cognitive and learning disabilities are among the least understood by the accessibility professional community but may in fact represent the greatest opportunities for businesses when you consider the growing aging market worldwide. The Cognitive and Learning Disabilities Accessibility Task Force’s aim is to improve web accessibility for people with cognitive and learning disabilities. Its work includes: 
   Creating a roadmap exploring how to make web content more accessible and usable by different people and groups of people with cognitive and learning disabilities;
 The review and development of techniques and identifying how they can be improved;
 The development of engineering approaches and authoring strategies; and  
 Identifying W3C efforts needed to fill gaps from content, browser support and authoring practices, as well as education and outreach. 
 The goal is to help authors make their content usable by as many people as possible, such as people with learning disabilities, memory impairments (as with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s) and language disabilities.
