SSI is hard to get. Be prepared to be denied the first and even second time you apply. Not sure but here's a BUMP!
Quoting Cmgmqmmom:Separation anxiety....no. What a ridiculous thing to even ask. Sorry.
I am not sure.
Probaby not. Our son is ADD/ADHD. He's an adult now. He does just fine with it. He's not currently on any meds. He learned the coping skills to deal with the ADD. They said it's very hard to get on it. You have to prove the illness is so severe. They can't function normally. Or the parents have to be at poverty level to get any government help. Like you prove you can't afford the meds or assistance to help your child with daily living.
Am not sure hon,Thinking most likely not for your DD .. sorry .
I doubt that you would be able to unless you have a diagnosis from a Psychiatrist that this is a debilitating disorder.
And, as a previous poster said, you need to try a few times before you do get approved. They always deny first.
Quoting mommysangelface:Is she prevented from doing things?
Do you require extra care for her? Meds you cannot afford?
For Seperation Anxiety? LMAO Don't put that on the application. They will turn you down in a heartbeat because it is going to look like you just want free money. Now if you have diagnosises for the ADHD and it is SEVERE enough (becuase mild ADHD won't cut it) then maybe you'll get something. But keep in mind SSI is for people who can't afford things like medication, therapies, and extra help the parents need to take care of the child. It's not just free money because your child has a disorder. It's really hard to get SSI.
