What is the name of your state?
I have made an SSI claim on behalf of my 5year old son. He has been diagnosed with ADHD and prescribed Ritalin. He also has speach difficutlies which require him to see a speach therapist once a week through head start. I have filed a claim for disability for him because my finances are tight and I receive no child support. The procedings are now at a point where I am being asked to have him be seen by the states doctor who will test him for his speach problems. First of all I am wondering why are they pursuing the speach testing and not the ADHD? Do children get SSI for ADHD and do they get SSI if they have speach difficulties? Is it advisable to go to the state testing or evaluation or should I let them make a decission based on the doctors I have used on my own. When is a good time to seek an attorney to process this claim?
