Learning Disabilities Early Diagnosis and Support Issues I wanted to begin by thanking Matthew for bringing this proposal to the MSC platform! With learning disabilities being such a difficult issue to attack, I think this idea has much potential to win the attention at the hearing. The consultations are concrete, evidencing the volumes of effort and time you have devoted to this cause. One drawback I have is the unspecified amount of funding you present. I think this might be problematic during the hearing if you are chosen, and adding numbers would make your proposal stronger. Thanks again!
