There are other impairments (neurological and medical conditions) which do not fit under the major categories already discussed but which are covered under Section 504 and the ADA. These disabilities (e.g. heart conditions, sickle cell anemia, hemophilia, arthritis, asthma, diabetes, respiratory disorders, cancer, kidney problems, Tourette's Syndrome, severe chronic pain) can affect students by significantly impairing their energy level, memory, mobility, speech, vision, or muscular coordination. In some cases, the degree of impairment may vary because of the nature of the medical condition. Some conditions are progressive and get worse year-by-year, resulting in emotional consequences for the student. Some students may be absent from class as a direct result of their disabilities, and they may require consideration regarding attendance policies. Some students may need accommodations similar to those found elsewhere in this guide. Others will need no special modifications.
