DISABILITY DEFINITION

 

For the purpose of serving students with disabilities, the ADA defines a disability as:

  1. a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits the student's equal access to educational and other university programs,
  2. a record of having such an impairment, or
  3. being regarded as having one (Jarrow, 1992).

In post-secondary settings, a person must be otherwise qualified to meet academic standards required for admission despite the disability.
