Orthopedic/Mobility Disabilities

Orthopedic/mobility impairments mean a serious limitation in locomotion or motor function. They include but are not limited to:

  • Impairments caused by congenital anomaly (e.g., clubfoot, absense of some member, etc.)
  • Impairments caused by disease (e.g., poliomyelitis, bone tuberculosis, etc.)
  • Impairments from other causes (e.g., cerebral palsy, amputation, back injuries, paralysis, etc.)

Orthopedic/mobility impairment does not apply to mobility limitation due to seeing, hearing, or psychological limitations or mobility limitation resulting from an acquired brain impairment (ABI).
