  • I haven't heard of getting any benefits for having ADHD. I have it and I am ahhh.. very functional. I think she should have been getting tutoring help for the last few years.
  • My sister is also functional with ADHD. She doesn't get any benefits (social security wise.) New York school have "504" where she can get extra time on tests with help from a teacher who can read out-loud to her. I don't know if you have 504 where you are, but you should look into it. She also gets tutoring at the school's cost because of ADHD.
  • That's not going to qualify for social security. You need to find out what other services and grants are available through your school district.
  • You won't receive SS for ADHD. She pretty much has to be physically disabled or retarded.
  • Here's my answer from your other question. Why did you post a 2nd one with practically the same wording? =========== First Answer by Shopping Sheryl HR with a pink jetpack39 on Aug 22, 2007 at 9:48 pm Permalink "That's not going to qualify for social security.

  • Usually ADHD does not get covered as a disability under the SS guidelines, but she should be able to get help in school like an ed service plan and accomadations for future testing and learning. It is sad but many people read at a lower level, but they learn how to compansate this with other skills and adaptive devices ie books on tape. You should encourage your daughter that she can have a great future,despite ADHD, not look for a disability check.
  • ADHD does not and should not qualify a child for a monthly social security check. I think parents have abused "the system" applying for ADHD when there are people with true disabilites. Look toward the school district for academic help and not towards the government to give you a monthly check for ADHD. A lot of people with ADHD are normal, highly functioning people with a future, not a disability.
  • This is in response to the answers given so far. The purpose of SSDI is to assist with financial costs of disabilities. ADHD, although considered by most to only be an educational deficiency, can be costly. It does effect children more than just in their education. Hyperactivity Disorder can be difficult for kids. They have a hard time maintaining themselves in various environments, as far as sitting still, being quiet, focusing, etc. The costs of the medication to assist with these problems can be outrageous. A 30 day supply of Ritalin LA 40 is $120+. The cost of counseling for the issues involved racks up as well. I don't think the parents are looking for a hand out of free money. They are looking for help for their kids. You make it sound so easy to get, but trust me, it's not.
  • So many people abuse the system, yet there are people out there with real physical disabilities that can't get any help. My son has ADHD and will probably have problems and depend on me all his life. I know he will never go to college and may have trouble holding jobs. No one has ever helped us with any of the costly burdens of this illness because we are working people. My advice- get a big life insurance policy in your child's name to give her something to depend on when you die and can no longer support her. That is what I am doing.
  • OK YOU PEOPLE ARE SO WEIRD. WHY HATE BECAUSE OTHER PARENTS GET SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK FOR THEIR ADHD CHILD. FIRST OF ALL TO ALL YOU DUMB HATTING PEOPLE KIDS WITH ADHD, ARE SO HYPER THAT THEY WILL NOT STAY STILL FOR 2-3 MNTS. WILL GET MAD EASY AND BEAT ON WHO EVER GETS THEM MAD, WILL HURT THEM SELF. AND COULD HURT OTHER PEOPLE SUCH AS ANIMALS. MY 2 1/2 YR OLD SON HAS ADHD AND HIS OWN COUNSELER ALWAYS ASK ME TO TAKE HIM OUT SIDE TILL SHE IS READY TO SEE HIM. MY SON BANGS HIS HEAD IN WHAT EVER HE SEES FIRST. HIS CREW TO MY ANIMALS, HE FIST FIGHTS HIS OLDER COUSINS. HITS ME WHEN I GET MAD AT HIM. AND HE HAS A HARD TIME LEARNING WORDS, CUZ HIS TO ACTIVE AND CANT LAST BEEN STILL. CALL ME CRAZY BUT PEOPLE WITH ADHD DO NEED HELP. MY SON DOES NOT GET GOVERNMENT CHECK AND I DONT PLAN TO, BUT IF SOME KIDS DO GET ACCEPT TO GET CHECK IS BECAUSE THE PARENTS ARE LOW INCOME. AND I DO AGREE THAT SOME PEOPLE DO ABUSE OF THIS SYSTEM JUST LIKE OTHERS DO AS WELL. LIKE PEOPLE WHO CLAIM FOR SS CHECK FOR, DEPRE$$ION, FOR HAVING SOME THING DEFORMED, EVEN FOR THE SMALLEST REASONS THEIR APPLYING FOR CHECK.AND NOT TO FOR GET ALL THEM FAT PEOPLE GET A CHECK AS WELL. JUST CUZ THEIR TO FAT AND THEY CANT WIPE THEIR ON FAT ASS. OK INSTEAD OF GIVING THEM SS CHECKS. PAY THEM A MEMBERSHIP AT THE GYM. WHY DO THEY NEED TO APPLY FOR A SS CHECK. OK THEY GOT FAT BECAUSE THEY WANT IT TO THATS NOT A DISEAS. THATS JUST CALLED BEEN TO DARN LAZZZZZZY TO GET IN A DIET AND LOOSE WEIGHT. OK SO THATS NOT ABUSING THE SYSTEM AS WELL. COME ON AND DEPRE$$ION IS NOT A FRIKEN REASON TO GET A CHECK. YOUR JUST FULL OF SHIT. SO JUST BECAUSE I FEEL DEPRE$$ ALL THE TIME I COULD APPLY FOR A CHECK? AND THATS NOT ABUSING THE SYSTEM. BUT A CHILD WHO WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ADHD, WELL THE PARENTS CAN NOT APPLY FOR A SS CHECK BEACUSE OMG THEIR JUST LIKE SO ABUSING THE GOVERNMENT SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK. " PEOPLE DONT TALK JUST TO HATE ON OTHER PARENTS IF THE GOVERMENT ACCEPT ITS BECAUSE THEY QUALIFY AS DISABLED. ADHD IS SOME THING BAD. THOSE KIDS COULD DAMAGE THEIR BRAIN. IF THEY GET HURT BAD, THE PARENTS ARE GOING TO BE IN BIG TROUBLE, CPS AND COPS ARE GOING TO GET ON THEIR ASSES, NOT ON YOURS. AND ILL TELL YOU WHAT MY SONS DOCTOR TOLD ME. YOU HAVE TO DISABLE YOUR SON BECAUSE IF SOME THING BAD HAPENS TO HIM, CPS IS GOING TO TAKE HIM AWAY TAKE HIM TO FOSTER HOME, HIS GOING TO STAY RETARD IT AND YOU IN JAIL. SO YES OF SO MANY SHIT THAT KIDS WITH ADHD HAVE DONE TO THEIR HEAD. THEY COULD STAY RETARD IT. THANKS GOD MY HAS NOT BUT I KNOW OTHER KIDS HAVE. SO FOR THE STUPID PEOPLE WHO MAKE FUN OF THIS KIDS WITH ADHD AND THEIR PARENTS WHO HAVE CLAIM FOR SS CHECK. I HOPE YOUR FUCKEN KIDS OR THEIR KIDS COME OUT WITH ADHD, " ITS GONA BE A LAUGH AND A TALK WHEN THEY GO APPLY FOR A GOVERMENT CHECK " AND DONT SAY NO!

  • i have 4 boys with ADHD but we dont recieve a SSI check. if i didnt have a decent job, i to believe we would have to file for SSI. there are extreme cases of ADHD and 1 of my 3 boys is an extreme case and its not that hes violent, he cannot sit still for long. he does exclent in school on some subjects but others he cannot. we have tried tutors and hes in the 504 program and myself didnt believe in the whole "ADHD" and adderall meds but somehow it really works for my household so god bless a single parent that is dealing with their child with the ADHD disorder because i know how a single parent or parents in general could need the SSI assist. this disorder can be very costly
  • MY SON HAS ADHD AND I DON'T RECIEVE A CHECK FOR MY CHILD BUT FOR THOSE WHO DO I AM NOT HATING BECAUSE IT IS COSTLY AND TRYING TO HOLD DOWN A JOB OR EVEN GETTING SOMEONE TO BABYSIT IS A TASK I GO TO SCHOOL FULLTIME AND I WORK AT A DETENTION CENTER FOR CHILDREN FULL TIME AND I HAVE TO TRY TO SEE ABOUT TWO BOYS ONE IS SEVERELY ADHD AND I AM DOING EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO MAKE SURE THAT MY SON GETS THE HELP HE NEEDS AND SOMETIMES I INTERFERS WITH MY WORK AND EVERYTHING ALL I KNOW IS EVERYBODY'S SITUATION IS NOT THE SAME SO YOU CAN NOT JUDGE EVERYBODY THE SAME BECAUSE NOBODY OR NOBODY'S LIFE IS THE SAME
  • To all on here like the novelist on the other page. I bet they could qualify for mental retardation benefits. My youngest son has ADHD. Other than a slight learning disability he is fine. He can ride a motorcycle dirt bike like no one at age 10. He taught himself how to ride a peddle bike, his razor scooter when he was 2 and a half years old. Then he taught himself how to ride his Jr 50 dirt bike at 3 years old. Now at 10 he is into a 110 quad and never lets off the throttle (he kicks a@@). Mom of 3 answer was best i seen on here. SSI would help us for his med cost. he is on Adderall Xr 30. It cost $40 a month. Every 3 months he has to go to his specialist for a checkup. that is $20. might not sound like a lot,but put food on top rent, gas,electric, water, sewage, etc. Its a lot when you add it all up. If we fall short for the month its not fair to him to not have his medicine (or to anyone else i may add WOOOOOO!). Also as far as college goes a person with ADD or ADHD will have all the opportunity to go to college. They have it paid for them from maxed grants federal and state. One more thing if you are taking your kid to a psychologist or therapist for ADHD or ADD. Then stop and shame on you. They don't need it the school they are in should have all the assets they need at there disposal. All therapist do is pity your kid and tell you what your doing wrong. My son doesn't strike out at anyone who makes him mad or fight that much. If your kid is doing that then he is a brat and don't use his ADD OR ADHD problem as the explanation.Smack his a@@. O.k. well I am done with my rant. Wow look i wrote a novel too. Lol t.y for listening.
