A developmental disability is any mental and/or physical disability which begins before the age of 22 and continues indefinitely. According the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), developmental disabilities are a group of conditions due to an impairment in physical, learning, language, or behavior areas. About one in six children in the U.S. have one or more developmental disabilities or other developmental delays.
