My son had been getting it for years. The amount is determined by the parents income. Because the child had not put any money into Social Security and the parents have. So you have to meet the income guidelines. There is a sliding scale where if you so much, your son may still get some but not top out.
I don't know if you need to wait for the diagnosis to get it. I didn't. SS may send you to their own doctors anyway.
PM me and maybe I can explain it a little better and answer any other questions I can.
