Seeking advice from anyone who has SSI or SSDI (?) for their special needs or disabled kids
My son is 7 years old. He is severely hearing impaired, ADHD, Disruptive Behavioral Disorder and also currently waiting for potential "high spectrum" Autism evaluation. At the moment he goes to a "school" which is really half education and have integrated therapy. Between my disabilities and illnesses and my son's hearing loss and neurobehavioral issues, the doctors appts and IEP meetings and him being set home, etc etc, and I'm a single mother- there is just absolutely no way that I can work doing anything that is not at home (I just started a resume business which is great but it takes a lot of time and money to market your business online). I was wondering if other mothers on here have gotten SSI or SSDI for their kids, what the process is like and if it's hard and takes a long time. I have already applied before for me and even being deaf and chronically ill I did not qualify but now that my son has his "diagnoses" officially I thought maybe I'd have better luck getting some gov't assistance.
Cafe mom is such a wonderful place to talk to other moms and get info! Thanks to everyone for making it so great!
