My son is 6 yrs old. He has been diagnosed with ADHD. He is taking meds but they sometimes do him any good.. He also has a learning disability. The prob is that he cannot take this med through summer breaks and when school is not in.. I have worked but due to his behavior it has been hard to keep a job. I myself have been hurt on the job so Now I stay home to care for him.. It is a very ahrd situation. My question is would he be able to recieve SSI??

It is possible. ADHD cases are more difficult than they used to be, but if you can show a severe enough disability and low enough family income, you might. I would sit down and talk to an attorney or two who handles a lot of these cases.

There are many children with ADHD, that is, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. A few of them have such a severe problem that they might qualify for benefits. It used to be easier to win a case on this basis in the past, but the rules were revised and it is more difficult to win on this basis. There was a perception that it caused a positive reward for bad behavior.

I have a question. My 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD in Jan 2004. She was sent to a behavioral clinic and they diagonsed her.I sent the results of that exam with my SSI information to Social Security. In the papers I sent it clearly states she that she has all the signs for ADHD and the signs for ODD. Her doctor there and her Pedatrician along with a counselor all agree she does. She is on Clonidine and Adderall and Zoloft. We are a low income family and she does have medicaid. I was wondering if you thought she might be able to recieve SSI.

Possibly. Only rarely is it enough to show that someone has a particular disease; it is almost always necessary to also show what limitations result for the person. Certainly there are many kids with ADHD, that is, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and ODD, or oppositional defiant disorder, who nevertheless are able to function normally. Further, the Administration has tightened up on these two diseases, and is more reluctant to give benefits for them.

You have to have doctors that say that she has significant limitation of function as a result of her problem.

My seven year old son has ADHD. He has a learning disability that has not yet been diagnosed by the doctors/school (they are still looking into it). He has already repeated kindergarten once. His second time around they wanted him to repeat it again, but I moved him on to the first grade. He has failed the first grade, and they want to put him into special education classes because he can barely read and write. He needs thearpy according to his doctors and my insurance does not cover this. Does he qualify?

I don't know. If you have strong support from his teachers and counsellors, you might consider filing. To get SSI, a child must show a marked limitation of function in at least two domains of function, or an extreme limitation in one domain.

Perhaps gather all of his school records and take them to an attorney who handles children's cases.

Our son is four years old and diagnosed with PDD-NOS,moderate speech,cognitive, and behavioral delays. Further testing is underway to confirm ADHD as well. My husband and I are both active duty military; does this automatically disqualify our son for SSI benefits?

Not in theory; it depends on your income. Gather up your family income information and take it to the Administration and make them calcualte it for you. If it doesn't seem right check their figures at Legal Aid if your income is low, or a private or JAG lawyer, if not.

Hard to say. Maybe check with her doctor or school counsellor, and if they support her vigorously, perhaps she might qualify.

Make sure that you and the school are doing everything you can to keep her going forward; these are as you know critical years for her.

Take care and good luck.

My 28 month old has been diagnosed with developmental delays. The Center for Autism and related disorders evaluated her and say she is on the spectrum. I am a single mom, unable to send her to daycare, and i occasionally recieve childsupport. Can my daughter qualify for ssi?

For each of these last 3 posts, it is hard to say, based on what you tell me. It depends on how much the condition, as best controlled, affects the kid's ability to function.

I have a 10yr old son that has been diagonised over the past 5 years as having ADHD, OCD, ODD, Depression, and Aspergers. He has been in therapy and on medication for 4 years. More intense therapy now with wrap around services. I am a single parent, and attend school fulltime with very limited income. I have an SSI interview scheduled, and wondered the possibility of him qualifying for SSI benefits.

It looks odd to answer the following questions exactly the same, but I guess it would be odder if 3 people asked the same question and I gave 3 different answers. The only possible answer to the question, "my son has x disease, is he disabled" is, "maybe." The key question you need to know before you can say whether someone is disabled is the limitations that are produced by the condition. Take care.

my son is eight years old and was diganosis with adhd and repeated first grade twice. I applied for ssi in october 2003 and was denied twice. I apealed to a hearing in front of a alj and won with no lawyer. ADHD is a serious disability and should not be taken lightly with the support of doctors and teachers he was approved june 22, 2005. Don't give up God bless

Possibly. If you want a more definite answer, you should gather your son's medical records and sit down with an attorney who handles social security disability cases.

You as a question it is impossible for me to answer. But if work is not a health risk, it is better to work if you can, and file only if you cannot work.

in your responses to the questions regarding adhd, your replys says it depends on your income. (among other things) I was just wondering if you have an idea of the income limits in these cases?

What about ADHD in adults? The inattentive type, or the hyperactive-impulsive type, or the combined type? If severe enough in an adult, could such a disorder be equal in severity to a listed impairment? What about getting a mental RFC for "less than unskilled work" for ADD/ADHD? My guess is that it would be difficult to prove.

It is difficult. I rarely see a claim under that diagnosis in an adult.

I cannot answer. The diagnoses are not enough. You need to say how much delay, how he functions as best treated.

Henry G., who posted on 7/19/05, asked about receiving SSDI benefits as a person with Adult ADD. "Severe Attention Deficit Disorder" happens to be the diagnosis that determined my !00% status for SSDI. My application was approved within a month - I never even had to go through an appeals process. Here's what's needed - at least it was successful in my case: An extremely thorough, MEDICALLY-based neuropsychiatric exam and report that makes it clear that you're unable to work now or in the future as result of the severity of your condition; an influential person(s) in the community where you are applying (a physician, a congressperson, or -if in a small community- just someone who's well-known) who will advocate for you with SSA. Make SURE your neuropyschologist is the BEST you can find and/or afford. The report she/he presents should detail all aspects of your disability, and your diagnosis must be written according to DSM-IV criteria. -- I hope this helps -- I'd be on the street, penniless, without my SSDI.
