A disabled individual is defined, according to ADA guidelines, as someone who has a mental or physical impairment that limits the capacity to work or affects another major life activity; has a record of this type of impairment; or is observed to have such impairment. Social Security defines a disabled individual as one who cannot carry out the same work that he or she was able to do previously and this individual is limited by a medical condition and cannot adjust to any other type of work.
