Neurological disability — sometimes referred to as neurological disorders — involves damage to the nervous system that results in some mental or bodily function loss.

This type of disability can be caused by infections, heart attacks, genetic disorders or lack of oxygen.

The effects will vary from person to person. There are times when symptoms for a person can vary depending on the day.

Those diagnosed with a neurological disability might:

  • Feel tired
  • Have trouble moving their body
  • Experience difficulty in processing information
  • Experience speech difficulties
  • Have an impaired ability to tolerate and express feelings
