It can be very challenging to find the right "key stakeholder" to represent the diversity of challenges faced by people with cognitive and learning disabilities. Is there any methodology to know we have achieved this? 

Also do we want to include emotional disabilities ? The COGA task force are starting to look into these issues as well. There is a strong overlap but there may be additional needs as well. 

All the best

    Lisa,
 Jeanne answered the question well, but just following up.  The WG will be approving / suggesting additions to the list of stakeholders.

   Lisa,
 Diversity of stakeholders, use cases and personas is a VERY important goal of Silver, and one that the group is very committed to.  The WCAG WG will be approving the stakeholder map, the use cases and personas before they are complete, and the WCAG WG will be receiving regular reports from the group so there should be sufficient controls to insure diversity. 
 
 I will say that personally, increasing the diversity of Silver is very important to me, and the major reason that I agreed to the research phase of the project.

  Hi Andrew
 
 Are there any controls  in place to make sure the stake holders, use cases and personas are sufficiently diverse? If it only focuses on though who turn up they it runs the risk of not addressing the needs of undeclared disabilities.

        CALL FOR CONSENSUS – ends Thursday October 27 at 5:00pm Boston time.
 
 
 This is a proposed response to an decision of the Working Group.  The item was surveyed, discussed on the WG call, and approved (http://www.w3.org/2016/10/25-wai-wcag-minutes.html#item07). 
 
 
 The decision is that the process defined at https://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/wiki/Process_of_Designing_Silver is agreed to by the working group as the way forward with a longer effort to research, develop requirements, and begin to produce a major update to WCAG. Please review the minutes of the call and the survey responses as you consider this CfC.
 
 
 If you have concerns about this proposed consensus decision that have not been discussed already and feel that those concerns result in you “not being able to live with” this position, please let the group know before the CfC deadline.
 
 
 
 
   Thanks,
 AWK
