In order to meet the definition of son or daughter as per Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), does child needs to be disabled from birth?

FMLA and disability of child

 No. The age of the child at the onset of a disability is irrelevant to determine whether the child is a 
son or daughter under the FMLA. An eligible employee is entitled to take FMLA leave to care for a 
son or daughter with a serious health condition who is 18 years of age or older and incapable of 
self-care because of a disability regardless of when the disability commenced.
