preview agenda

   Lisa: Ping me again with any unanswered communications





   Lisa: work continues on Wiki gap analyses - lit reviews, focus
   on IT, not just web

user group findings: Aging and dementia, dyslexia, other



   Katie/Ryladog: gap analysis talking about cognitive decline,
   including dementia and Alzheimer's

   Mary Joe: info included about cognitive functions and different
   parts of the brain

   Lisa: People with Down Syndrome having same challenges

   Mary Joe: Used in Aging and Dementia gap analysis the same
   categories as Lisa used in the Dyslexia gap analysis

   Lisa: many subgroups of people with Dyslexia, with different
   characteristics, for whom the challenges map differently
   ... That's a reason why we should review etiology when writing
   gap analyses
   ... exploring etiology is useful for mapping cognitive function
   and possible solutions

   Katie: exploring etiology and underlying conditions are useful
   for now
   ... perhaps we should use plain language rather than medical
   language when discussing etiology

   Lisa: gap analyses are background research that may never be



   Katie/Ryladog: Added info, to Aging and Dementia gap analysis,
   from of the UK

   Katie/Ryladog: Trying to be very specific about where
   statistics are coming from (in A&D gap analysis)

   <NeilMilliken> or conversely you feel much poorer than you are
   because your concept of the value of things is rooted in a past



   Lisa_Seeman: Should focus on how challenges are affecting use
   of ICT
   ... moving people around to various groups would help because
   people have various strengths

   Katie/Ryladog: Significantly more to write for A&D gap analysis

   <Lisa_Seeman> my voice is gone

   <KateDeibel> a potential reference/starting point for aging and
   ICT is Ronald Baecker's TAG lab: [13]


   Lisa: Anyone from ADD group want to provide an update?

   <KateDeibel> TAG: Technologies for Aging Gracefully Lab

   <Lisa_Seeman> (Thanks suzzane

   Lisa: We need to combine literature reviews with talking with
   real users when doing background research

   <NeilMilliken> +Q

   <KateDeibel> +Q

   Neil: will help out with autism group

   <NeilMilliken> A sub list would be good

   <KateDeibel> Agreed

   <NeilMilliken> We are actually looking into what new tech we
   might be able to implement / create for supporting
   Neurodiversity in the work place especially ASD

   <NeilMilliken> get well soon :-)
