Do anyone get ssi for a child of theirs because they are speech delayed epalisy or hearing loss?

My son is 3 yrs old he is speech delayed he knows only about 30 words and they are in no way shape or form clear, or understandable to people that do not see him everyday. He

He also has complete and partle epalisy and has been on his meds for about 7 months and it has not helped much he is still having sezoiurs 2 or 3 times a month. I find it very hard to work when a lot of times most people are not willing to deal with a child who does not talk so there for he crys a lot and I tried to applie for ssi and they are taking like for ever any adive
