The Accessible Platform Architectures and Accessibility Guidelines 
Working Groups have published a first Working Draft of Cognitive 
Accessibility Roadmap and Gap Analysis:

  https://www.w3.org/TR/coga-gap-analysis/

This document was developed over the past couple years by the Cognitive 
and Learning Disabilities Accessibility Task Force. It explores user 
needs for people with cognitive or learning disabilities and identifies 
where additional web content authoring guidance is needed to help 
authors meet these needs. This information is important to new guidance 
being added to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. Its publication 
now provides background to some of the new success criteria in WCAG 2.1 
and describes user needs to be addressed in future versions of the 
guidelines. The task has been working on enhanced content for the table 
of user needs which is available at 
http://w3c.github.io/coga/gap-analysis/table.html and is expected to be 
incorporated into a future version of this document.

If you have comments on this draft, we prefer that you file input as new 
issues in GitHub at:

Alternatively, you can send email to:

public-coga-comments@w3.org <mailto:public-coga-comments@w3.org>

Comments are requested by 16 January 2018 but will continue to be 
reviewed after that date as well.
