Hi David,

The person with  maybe the most knowledge in the universe about this topic is DAVID ROSE of CAST.  Maybe you know him.

CAST = Center for Applied Special Technology, 1-781-254-2212. email:  cast@cast.org.

By the by--I don't know how others feel about this, but I am starting to say Learning Differences, not disabilities or difficulties.  It doesn't parse well, except when I say  LD, but is a kinder term. Lots of us learn SOMETHING differently.

I met a guy last weekend who cannot read, uses assistive technology,  he is getting his master's degree at the Ed School, Harvard. 

Maybe you could have David Rose as a guest?

Andrea
