language pathologies wiki

Notice: Dear all,

I was wondering if anyone knows of a currently-existing (or under construction) wiki specifically written to compare characteristics among language disorders (both acquired and developmental). I am a Masters student in a clinical linguistics program and am often surprised and intrigued by the similarities that certain pathologies share (such as a frequently observed sensitivity to sound among individuals with Williams syndrome and autism). I think it would be nice to have a wiki on which linguists could add characteristics under each pathology heading with citations (and possible attached PDFs of the articles). This would make research more efficient and possibly shed light on commonalities and differences that have not previously been explored.

If such a wiki does not currently exist to anyone's knowledge, would anyone be interested in developing this wiki with me?

Thank you very kindly in advance for your help!

With best regards,
