WHAT IS A DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY?

A developmental disability is a mental or physical impairment that starts before age 22, continues indefinitely, and causes substantial difficulties in self-care, language, mobility, self-direction, independent living, learning and economic self-sufficiency. Developmental disabilities can range in severity from mild to profound based on an individual’s need for supports.  (Source Cuyahoga County Board of Developmental Disabilities.)
