What header should we use here?

  • Define a Disability - Section 504 of the Americans with Disabilities Act defines a disability as a physical impairment, which substantially limits one or major life activities, for ex: breathing, speaking, seeing, walking, learning, working or taking care of oneself. Even if others do not perceive you as having such impairment, you may have a disability. The key here is the term substantially limits. This means a person is restricted as to the condition or manner, or duration under which a major life activity can be performed, in comparison to the average person or to most people, or that a person cannot perform the activity at all.
