Orange County Social Security Lawyers
for People with Learning Disabilities
Our experienced Social Security Lawyers understand that a learning disability can be both financially and emotionally draining for parents. Treatment for learning disabilities – including special education, tutors, medications and/or private schooling – are expensive. Additionally difficult is the effect that a learning disability has on the person’s ability to hold down a job during adulthood.
Many people do not realize, however, that children and adults with learning disabilities can apply for Social Security benefits to aid with the huge financial costs of a life with learning disabilities.
Our experienced Social Security Lawyers understand not only how disability benefits can help a person with learning disabilities – we also “know the ropes” of how to apply for Social Security for learning disabilities, so that our clients obtain the maximum benefits for which they qualify.
Qualifying for SSI with a Learning Disability –
There are certain requirements that must be met by people with learning disabilities in order to qualify for SSI disability benefits. In a child or an adult SSI applicant, the learning disability must be sufficiently severe enough for grades, behavioral skills, communication skills and job skills to be compromised.
Additionally, a learning disability must be extremely well-documented. Medical diagnosis -as well as sufficient medical and educational treatment- must be verified. School records and medical records of the child or adult will all be needed to provide proper documentation.
Learning Disabilities that Qualify for Social Security
Additionally, to qualify for SSI disability benefits for a learning disability, the disability must be one of the conditions that are inhibiting enough for disability to be proven. Common disabilities that may qualify include a wide variety of autistic diagnoses, mental disabilities of a severe enough capacity, ADD/ADHD, as well as “borderline intellectual functioning.”
Applying for SSI Disability for Learning Disability –
Applying for SSI for learning disability benefits can be a lengthy and tedious process. If you are the parent of a learning disabled child, you may not have the time or the energy to jump through all of the “legal hoops” required by the Social Security Administration. Conversely, if you are a learning disabled adult, it may be very difficult for you to try to get through the application and approval process on your own.
