Hi Lisa,



I don't know of techniques unique to people with Autism. That is why, in the Autism Gap Analysis<http://www.w3.org/TR/coga-user-research/#autism>, I listed the techniques of WebAIM’s Cognitive Web Accessibility Checklist<http://wave.webaim.org/cognitive>. Thus, I cannot add a subset of Autism-specific techniques to our master list.



We may want to consider adding WebAIM’s techniques to the superset that applies to all people with cognitive disabilities.

John
