No matter how disabled a child is, he will be able to do something. Perhaps he can just turn his head or take weight on his legs when placed in standing. Perhaps he can indicate his needs by moving his hands. As long as what he does can be said to have a useful function, it is an ability, even if he uses abnormal patterns to achieve it.
