    Yes.

    There are some special provisions under the Act that cover, for example, progressive conditions and past disabilities. In defining 'normal day-to-day activities' the DDA states that at least one of the following areas must be badly affected:

    • Mobility
    • Manual dexterity
    • Physical coordination
    • Continence
    • Ability to lift, carry or move everyday objects
    • Speech, hearing or eyesight
    • Memory or ability to concentrate, learn or understand
    • Understanding of the risk of physical danger.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!
