(a) Legal Services Program means any beneficiary within the meaning of section 1600.1 of this chapter or any other body, institution, organization or other body, public or private, or any person to whom the Société des services juridiques provides financial assistance, directly or through any other body, institution, organization, partnership or person, including the successor, the transferee or recipient of a legal services program, excluding the ultimate beneficiaries of mutual legal assistance; (iii) does not have any of the deficiencies defined in paragraph 1 of this definition, but is treated as such by the Agency. The Council`s tax legislation introduced by the Local Government Finance Act 1992 provided that severely mentally handicapped persons were not taken into account for tax purposes. To be eligible, a person must be medically certified that they have a permanent medical condition that affects their intelligence and/or social functioning and that they are eligible (but not necessarily receiving) one of the relevant Social Security benefits. [1] Tools are services or devices that allow people with impaired sensory, manual or oral abilities to have an equal opportunity to participate and enjoy the benefits of programs or activities. Useful tools for the visually impaired include, for example, players, brayed equipment, audio recordings, telecommunications equipment and other similar services and devices. Useful tools for the hearing impaired include telephone amplifiers, hearing aid-compatible telephones, telecommunications equipment for the deaf (TTY), interpreters, notes, written materials and other similar services and devices. (iv) is considered to be impaired: (A) has a physical or mental impairment that does not physically limit important life activities, but that is treated as such a limitation by a legal services program; (B) has a physical or mental impairment that significantly restricts important activities of living solely because of the attitude of others towards those impairments; or (C) has none of the deficiencies defined in paragraph (c)(2)(i) of this section, but is treated as such by a legal services program; It is important to remember that « disability » is a legal rather than a medical term in the context of the ADA. Because there is a legal definition, the ADA`s definition of disability differs from the definition of disability in other laws, such as Social Security-related benefits. Under the Social Security Contributions and Benefits Act 1992, a person may be entitled to the higher mobility component of the disability maintenance allowance if he or she is receiving the highest care component of the allowance and is severely mentally disabled, has severe behavioural problems or a combination of both.

The Social Security (Living Allowance for Disabled Persons) Regulations 1991 define these terms more precisely. [2] Since 2015, only children are eligible. The four conditions must be met: (2) for other services, a person with a disability who meets the eligibility criteria to receive such services under the Legal Services Program. 1. In relation to a programme or activity of the Agency in which a person is required to provide services or achieve a level of performance, a person with a disability who meets the essential eligibility criteria and is able to achieve the objective of the programme or activity without modifying the programme or activity for which the Agency can demonstrate: lead to a fundamental change in their nature; or (3) has a history of such impairment, has a history of mental or physical impairment, or has been erroneously classified as mental or physical that significantly limits one or more important life activities. (i) Any physiological disorder or condition, aesthetic disfigurement or anatomical loss affecting one or more of the following body systems: neurological; Muscle; special sensory organs; the respiratory tract, including the organs of speech; cardiovascular; reproductive; digestive; Genitourinary; heme and lymphatic; Skin; and endocrine; or Assistant Attorney General means the Assistant Attorney General, Civil Rights Division, U.S. Department of Justice. The ADA defines a person with a disability as a person with a physical or mental impairment that significantly restricts one or more important activities of life.

This includes people who have such a disability, even if they do not currently have a disability. This includes people who do not have a disability but are considered disabled. The ADA also makes it illegal to discriminate against a person on the basis of that person`s association with a person with a disability. Installation means all or part of buildings, structures, equipment, roads, sidewalks, parking lots, railway vehicles or other means of transportation or other real or personal property. (ii) Any mental or mental disorder, such as intellectual disability, organic brain syndrome, emotional or mental illness, and specific learning disabilities. The term physical or mental impairment includes, but is not limited to, diseases and conditions such as orthopedic, visionary, speech and hearing disorders, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, cancer, heart disease, diabetes, mental retardation, emotional illnesses, medication supplementation and alkholism. (2) For the purposes of clause (c)(1) of this section, the sentence: (1) In relation to employment, a person with a disability who is able, with reasonable accommodation, to perform the essential functions of the employment concerned; (2) Important life activities include functions such as self-care, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning and working. (3) A qualified person with a disability is defined for employment purposes in 29 CFR 1613.702(f), which is made applicable to that part by § 1181.140.

A person with a disability is any person who has a physical or mental impairment that significantly restricts, has or is considered to have such a disability one or more important life activities. e) Assistive devices and/or other assistive technologies are any item, equipment or product system, whether commercially acquired, modified or adapted off the shelf, and used to augment, maintain or improve the functional abilities of persons with disabilities. Tools and/or other assistive technologies include, but are not limited to, rail and glued materials, interpreters, telecommunications equipment for the deaf, voice recognition software, computer screen magnifiers, screen reader software, wireless amplification systems and other assistive devices. The Mental Health Act 1983 used the term to authorize detention or guardianship in hospital. Full complaint means a written statement containing the name and address of the complainant and describing the alleged discriminatory action taken by the authority in sufficient detail to inform the authority of the nature and date of the alleged violation of section 504. It shall be signed by the complainant or by a person authorized to do so on his behalf. Complaints filed on behalf of classes or third parties should describe or identify the alleged victims of discrimination (by name if possible). (ii) there is evidence of such impairment, or (iii) is considered to be such a disability; (2) In relation to another program or activity, a person with a disability who meets the essential eligibility requirements to participate in or receive benefits from that program or activity.
