Frequently asked questions

What constitutes a disability?

A disability is defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as a mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities. Learning is an example of a major life activity. If you have a mental or physical condition, a history of such a condition, or a condition which may be considered by others as substantially limiting, you may have a legally defined disability.
