Doctor Armstrong, thank you for looking deeply into this on focusing on a 'cure' to the neglect of those now experiencing this syndrome. The same thing is occurring in the so-called War on Alzheimer's.
My outreach is to young people who may do better interacting with an email than with an another human being. Please let me know if you are aware of anyone who might profit from elementary mathematical problem solving delivered by email ... NOT drills in calculation! but a novel approach to 'story problems' and the use of mathematical models to solve them.
