Having Attention-deficit Hyperactivity Disorder can be extremely difficult on children. Whether trying to go to school, make friends or pay attention to anything, ADHD can cripple how a child lives. Those who have children who suffer from ADHD may be able to get disability benefits from the Social Security Administration.
In order to prove that a child’s case to a SSA judge, parents should have medical records prepared. DisabilitySecrets said prescription medication will most likely be a big factor as well, as judges may think the ADHD isn’t as serious if a medical professional hasn’t considered medication. School testing and testimony from teachers and other aides at school may also be necessary to win a case, but it can be done to give families financial relief.
Symptoms of ADHD include inattention, hyperactivity, poor judgements or impulses and a combination of all of these coalescing into one. These can all spell problems for a child trying to get through a school day or get a proper night’s sleep.
The Law Offices of Harold W. Conick and Associates have represented numerous children who suffer from ADHD as well as other mental illnesses. We are experts at winning disability benefits for such children. It is very important for the parents of children suffering from these disorders to have complete psychological testing performed as well as school IEP reports available for consideration. This can work as evidence in support of their child’s Social Security disability case.
