Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Type Two: Developmental disability. Developmental disability means a disability that is attributable to: (i) an intellectual disability, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, or autism or (ii) any other condition that results in impairment similar to that caused by an intellectual disability and requires services similar to those required by persons with intellectual disabilities. Such a disability must originate before the age of 18 years, be expected to continue indefinitely, and constitute a substantial disability. The Secretary of State shall establish standards not inconsistent with this provision necessary to determine the presence of a developmental disability.
    Type Three: Visual disability. A visual disability is blindness, and the term "blindness" means central vision acuity of 20/200 or less in the better eye with the use of a correcting lens. An eye that is accompanied by a limitation in the fields of vision so that the widest diameter of the visual field subtends an angle no greater than 20 degrees shall be considered as having a central vision acuity of 20/200 or less. The Secretary of State shall establish standards not inconsistent with this Section necessary to determine the presence of a visual disability.
    Type Four: Hearing disability. A hearing disability is a disability resulting in complete absence of hearing, or hearing that with sound enhancing or magnifying equipment is so impaired as to require the use of sensory input other than hearing as the principal means of receiving spoken language. The Secretary of State shall establish standards not inconsistent with this Section necessary to determine the presence of a hearing disability.
    Type Five: Mental Disability. A mental disability is a significant impairment of an individual's cognitive, affective, or relational abilities that may require intervention and may be a recognized, medically diagnosable illness or disorder. The Secretary of State shall establish standards not inconsistent with this provision necessary to determine the presence of a mental disability.
    (b) For purposes of this Act, a disability shall be classified as follows: Class 1 disability: A Class 1 disability is any type disability which does not render a person unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity or which does not impair his ability to live independently or to perform labor or services for which he is qualified. The Secretary of State shall establish standards not inconsistent with this Section necessary to determine the presence of a Class 1 disability.
