Developmental disability is a severe, chronic disability due to a mental or physical impairment or combination of mental and physical impairments that start before a person is 22 years old, and are expected to continue indefinitely, resulting in substantial functional limitations in major life activities, and reflect the person's need for lifelong individualized support or assistance.
