A “developmental disability” is broadly defined as a severe, chronic, often lifelong disability that causes substantial limitations in several major life activities such as: self-care, receptive and expressive language, learning, mobility, self-direction, the capacity for independent living, and economic self-sufficiency. A developmental disability is attributable to a mental, emotional, sensory, and/or physical impairment that is apparent before the age of twenty-two.
Scholarship availability is limited.
