Orthopedic impairment (Sec. 300.8(c)(8))

Comment: One commenter requested that the examples of congenital anomalies in the definition of orthopedic impairment in current Sec. 300.7(c)(8) be retained.

Discussion: The examples of congenital anomalies in current Sec. 300.7(c)(8) are outdated and unnecessary to understand the meaning of orthopedic impairment. We, therefore, decline to include the examples in Sec. 300.8(c)(8).

Changes: None.
