Chuck,

	Sounds like your Mr. Chips program is a good step in the right direction.
The needs of learners will be different from the needs of adults with
cognitive disabilities (e.g. it's OK for adults to use "crutches" as much
as they need to, if the "crutch" is helpful).

	Chuck, I would be very interested in thinking (and working) towards the
development of Mr. Chips and other educationally-oriented software. Let me
know how I can help.
