What is a disability?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) defines a person with a disability as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity.
ADA protects individuals with disabilities in a variety of ways, including reasonable accommodations in learning environments. At OU, accommodations are utilized by students who may need to learn material differently than other students. If you utilized accommodations in high school, they may have been written in an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) or 504 plan.
