I was told by my childs psychologist to apply for SSI Disability for him a few years ago. I never followed up on it though. Most recently at his IEP meeting for school they suggested that we should consider applying for SSI Benefits. I guess I am a little confused. What is the purpose of sending a child a check? Is it to save for when they are adults? Does anyone know the $$ amount that they give children that are disabled? I am just curious, so if there is ANYONE who can give me any insight as to whether or not this would be an avenue to pursue, I sure would appreciate it.
Oh, and here is what my child has been diagnosed with: ADHD, Bi-Polar Disorder with underlying Schitzophrenia, and Oppositional Defiance Disorder. He is 12 years old now, and was originally diagnosed as a toddler.
