A List of Disabilities
Q: Does the ADA have a full list of all the conditions that are covered under the act?
A: No, an individual with a disability is defined in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as someone who has "a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; has a record of such an impairment; or is regarded as having such an impairment." Many conditions could fall under this, and the ADA intended for “disability” to be a legal term rather than a medical term. As a result, there is no official list but only ones that give examples of likely disabilities.
