Thanks for the reminder, Lisa.

Was COGA consulted in creating the section on "Cognitive, learning and neurological disabilities<https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdeploy-preview-113--wai-people-use-web.netlify.app%2Fpeople-use-web%2Fabilities-barriers-cognitive%2F&data=04%7C01%7Cjohn.rochford%40umassmed.edu%7Cf3aabf1c309e481e8b8e08d9bebac699%7Cee9155fe2da34378a6c44405faf57b2e%7C0%7C0%7C637750531681657505%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=6ivX7veMxmb%2FS5pzIpra06p0ZAMG2I2fwwOg99rqkI4%3D&reserved=0>"? Here are a few things in this section that caught my attention:

  *   The first sentence in the summary is not easy to understand: "Cognitive, learning, and neurological disabilities involve neurodiversity and neurological disorders, as well as behavioral and mental health disorders that are not necessarily neurological."
  *   The list of examples has a bullet for "multiple sclerosis" and a bullet for "seizure disorders."
  *   The list of examples does not mention "brain injury" or "aphasia" (although the "memory impairments" bullet does mention "limited ability to recall language, so maybe that is a reference to aphasia?)

his is expected to be a "last call" for this resource. They would like to resolve all major comments with this round of review. !

We may ask for more time, but getting some comments in now is better!

All the best
Lisa
