Did you know that the CDC defines cognitive impairment as “when a person has trouble remembering, learning new things, concentrating, or making decisions that affect their everyday life” and symptoms can range from mild to severe? Or that a person with developmental disabilities is defined as having “ a diverse group of severe chronic conditions that are due to mental and/or physical impairments”?
