How do I know if I have a disability?elaine2020-02-11T16:46:37+00:00You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that:
substantially limits a major life activity, or
a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
For example, if you had cancer and it is in remission, you are still considered an individual with a disability since if the cancer returned, it would substantially limit major life activities. The same is true of conditions that are controlled by medication, for example, chronic migraines or learning and attention issues. Other examples – this is not an exhaustive list – of disabilities are:
Blindness
Deafness
Cancer
Diabetes
Epilepsy
Autism
Cerebral palsy
HIV/AIDS
Schizophrenia
Muscular dystrophy
Bipolar disorder
Major depression
Multiple sclerosis (MS)
Missing limb or partially missing limbs
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Obsessive compulsive disorder
Impairments requiring the use of a wheelchair
Intellectual disability (previously called mental retardation)
