I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
As a general rule, not all children with ADHD, especially of it is under reasonable control through medication will be deemed disabled under social security regulations and therefore eligible for SSI benefits.
However, some children with ADHD are in fact eligible because of the severity of their disease.
This is a determination best made by the child's treating physician based on the guidelines of social security. SSI defined disability for a child using the following guidelines:
1. The child has a physical or mental condition or conditions that can be medically proven and which result in marked and severe functional limitations;
2. The child's medically proven physical or mental condition or conditions must last or be expected to last at least 12 months or be expected to result in death.
To apply on behalf of a child for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits, you need to submit information about the child's medical conditions, medical records, education, and work history and contact Social Security to complete an application for SSI benefits.
Here is a link to the social security site where the child's parent can make the application for SSI"
