A number of students on campus who are registered with the CSD have illnesses or medical conditions that do not fit into any of the major disability groups previously outlined. Their illnesses or conditions may affect their energy level, memory, mobility, speech, vision, and/or muscular control. In some cases, the degree of impairment may even vary from one day to the next because of the nature of the medical condition, medication received, or therapy. Illnesses may not follow a set course or may be progressively debilitating, which can cause emotional issues for the student.
Some of these disabilities may include HIV/AIDS, allergies, arthritis, burns, cancer, cerebral palsy, chronic pain, diabetes, epilepsy, fibromyalgia, heart disease, hemophilia, lupus, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, renal-kidney disease, respiratory disorders, sickle-cell anemia, stroke, Tourette’s Syndrome, among many others.
