Down syndrome is a genetic disease and occurs when an individual has a full or partial extra copy of chromosome 21.Common traits are low muscle tone, small stature, an upward slant to the eyes, and a single deep crease across the center of the palm.

Cerebral palsy is a disorder that affects muscle tone, movement, and motor skills. It usually appears before a child reaches 3 years of age and rarely progresses past a certain point. There is no cure, but therapies and surgery can help relieve some symptoms.

Usher syndrome is a condition characterized by hearing loss and progressive vision loss. There are three major types of Usher syndrome, types I, II, and III, and designation depends on severity and age.

Low Incident Disabilities are disabilities that rarely exceed 1% of the student population.
