Definition of disability
Children have a disability if they have a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities (SENDA).
Impairment covers physical, sensory and mental difficulties, including learning difficulties.
A substantial adverse effect is where a difficulty goes beyond the normal differences in ability, which might exist among people.
A long term effect is a period of at least twelve months.
