I really liked this from a very brief review. perhaps a review of
resources that enable skills to be learned could be included?
We developed a small range of activities that help people learn the
alphabet through highly motivational activities, and others that
break down navigation skills into very small tasks, such as moving
the mouse, or clicking. Many people find it very difficult to drag
scroll bars, let alone click on the minute arrows at the bottom.

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,
