EveryChild uses the following definition of disability:

"Disability is the disadvantage and exclusion which arise as an outcome of the interactions between people who have impairments and the social environmental barriers they face due to the failure of society to take account of their rights and needs. There are following examples of impairment that are considered as disability: cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, consequence of meningoencephalitis, autism, epilepsy, moderate and severe mental delay, hydrocephalus, deaf-dumbness, blindness.

An impairment is a physical, mental or sensory characteristic or condition, which places limitations on an individual’s personal or social functioning in comparison with someone who does not have that characteristic or condition. "
