I think they are close . Three small comments

1. I am not sure a definition should start with "Involves"  or "Unlike". I think they should say what the thing is.

for eample

Age Appropriate Forgetfulness (sometimes called “age related memory loss”) 

Unlike people with dementia, those with age appropriate forgetfulness have memory issues that can be a normal part of aging. They may take longer to learn new things, forget something but remember it later, or occasionally forget particular words.

could be

Age Appropriate Forgetfulness (sometimes called “age related memory loss”) 

people with with age appropriate forgetfulness have memory issues that can be a normal part of healthy aging (unlike dementia). They may take longer to learn new things, forget something but remember it later, or occasionally forget particular words.

2. Some times an example would make it clearer. 

for example

Alternative and Augmentative Communication System (sometimes referred to as “AAC”)

Any device or app that can be used to help those who cannot use spoken language and need additional support by means of symbols, images and/or text.

could have added

"For example, a board of symbols or pictures that say a word when pressed"

3. alternative terms and abbreviation could just be in brackets after the term

such as: Alternative and Augmentative Communication System (AAC)

All the best

That makes sense, but we could always request it gets promoted to a 
better place.
