Dear Jonathan:
Just caught your email during my return flights from Africa.  (Not home 
yet!) 

Congratulations!  And thank you for the links to your papers.  Your work is 
sorely needed. 

For your information, during our United Nations African Region meeting on 
the treaty or Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities, questions 
were raised about the needs of persons with learning disabilities.  I was 
thinking of you throughout the conference and am very glad to hear your 
news. 

Congratulations again - 

Cynthia Waddell
