    • 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
