      hi my grandson was diagnossed with  ADHD  a few months ago, he was given meds and recently was seen again by his dr and his meds were increased,  she has applied for ssi, but was denied, but is appealing it at this time, my question is what is ssi wanting to see that he is improving while on his meds?  because he is .

       

      he use to be very easily distracted, squirming all the time, interupting people all the time, easily distracted at school , mood swings, etc, but seems to be so much better,  my questions, is what was your child approved upon?

       

      please email me at   mssara1962@yahoo.com

       

      i would like to talk to you about this further, regarding how he can get approved .

      No If you are a child meaning under the age of 18 you will have to apply for SSI NOT SSD , SSD you have worked and paid into. A child cannot work or pay into the system. But to answer tyhe question, yes, you call your local ssd office and make an appt. They will then have you sign release forms to get school and medical records. You will more than likely be denied the first two times, on the third try ask for a FORMAL HEARING. You will then see a ssd court judge who will decide the case . More likely than not it will be in your childs favore. I hope this helps you somewhat. My child is adhd and after going thru denials, we took it to court and she now gets a ssi check each month.

      ADHD is a disability. It can keep your child from learning because they are not able to stay on task and focus on the work infront of them. You can go thru and try to receive a disability check on your child  (1) to help pay for the needed medication if you do not have insurance (2) to help pay for a tutor to help with one on one learning time with your child (3) to help pay for counseling to help your child better understand what is going on and what the disablilty is.
