Developmental disabilities are a disability diagnosed as a mental or physical condition or a combination of mental and physical conditions resulting in significant impairments to daily functioning. The disability:

  • Must have its origin in the brain
  • Must be established prior to the age of 22, or in the case of intellectual disability the condition must be determined before 18 years of age
  • Must be expected to last indefinitely
  • Must result in significant impairments in at least two areas of daily functioning:
    • self care
    • communication
    • cognition
    • mobility
    • self direction
    • capacity for independent living and economic self sufficiency
  • The impairments must not be primarily related to: mental illness, substance abuse, an emotional disorder, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a learning disability or sensory impairment

The most common developmental disabilities include: intellectual disability, Down syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and fetal alcohol effect or fetal alcohol syndrome.
