Hi All,

Information about the research conducted to determine WebAIM's guidelines for cognitive web accessibility, which included testing of students with cognitive disabilities and a literature review, can be found at http://webaim.org/projects/steppingstones/cognitiveresearch

Hi Lisa and All,

The points Lisa makes are good ones.

About the persona citation:
I did receive permission from one the authors, Sarah Horton, to cite the persona in the Autism Gap Analysis. Is that sufficient to use copyrighted content?

About the guidelines:
I will contact Jared Smith, of WebAIM, to discover the sources of the research. Even so, it would be good to get feedback from the group about whether or not general guidelines should be used in a gap analysis for a specific disability. One reason I did was because it is my understanding we will eventually combine our analyses into a single set.
