Hi Folks

Michel and I were chatting, and we came out with another example for use of cognitive function tags rather referring to disabilities. I thought it was worth sharing :)

Take a technique that helps people with ADD
If we label it for ADD/ ADHD we have helped these users.

On the other hand, if we label good for people with  attention limitations  we label it as helpful for:
ADD, ADHD, disabilities such as Dementia,  mental health issues such as people with PTSD, and people who just right now, need help focusing, because there is too much going on at the same time.

All the best
