Totally with you on the lack of interest and work re. Learning Disabilities, 
so great to see your page up and going.


My background is in working for moderate to severely learning disabled 
adults, although I still would not say that I am a complete expert. However, 
obvious things games need:

Consideration that some players won't be able to read. Icons, photos and 
symbols can be helpful. See: http://www.symbolworld.org/
Simplified controls - think Atari VCS days.
Easier settings and goals.


All the best,
