looking for examples of cognitive disability and technology

In the process of preparing a presentation I will be giving in May, I am
looking for examples of people with various disabilities and their use
of technology. I have examples for visual, auditive and motor
disabilities (though would welcome any other resources). For example,
here in Qu├ębec, members of the Deaf community have created Espace
FrancoSourd[1], which is a Facebook type network with various features,
set up by deaf people.

Unfortunately, I am having trouble finding examples of projects for
people with cognitive disabilities. While there is a lot of material out
there on how to make the Web more accessible to this particular
community, there does not seem to be anything in terms of interesting
projects or concrete examples where people with cognitive disabilities
use technology.

Any feedback would be appreciated.
