FMLA and serious health condition

 Determination of whether an impairment qualifies as a serious health condition is evaluated on a 
case-by-case basis, and can vary between individuals with the same disability. While cerebral palsy is 
recognized to be a disability, family member must also be incapable of self-care because of her 
disability and her need for care must result from a serious health condition as defined in the FMLA.
