Cognitive Learning Disabilities
Clear writing and good use of images and audio can help those with learning disabilities, who may need support for complex use of language. Simple navigation, easy-to-follow links and clear web page design helps everyone, but these features are particularly important for this group of people. Clear feedback when performing actions is beneficial, but too many links and dense text will not help. Further advice from the WebAIM Steppingstones Project on Web Accessibility and Cognitive Disabilities in Education.
