My child has Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Is she disabled?

Gardberg, Clausen & Kemmerly handles children's disability claims for Supplemental Security Income. These claims are filed by concerned parents who worry that their child is struggling in some particular area and hope that increased income could get them the help they need - for example, additional or specialized medical treatment or additional school tutoring. By far, one of the most common impairments I see is ADHD. Many parents want to know if their child with ADHD can qualify for SSI.

Disability Benefits for Wounded Warriors

Military service members can receive expedited processing of disability applications from Social Security Administration under a special program called Wounded Warriors. To qualify for the expedited process, military service members must have become disabled while on active military service on or after October 1, 2001, regardless of where the disability occurred. To be found disabled for Social Security benefits, the military service member must be unable to do substantial work because of his or her medical condition and the medical condition must have lasted, or be expected to last, at least one year or to result in death. It is important to note that Social Security disability benefits are different than those from the Department of Veterans Affairs, and require a separate application.
