Can Your Child Qualify For Social Security Disability If They Have ADHD???

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or attention deficit disorder (ADD), is sometimes diagnosed in children who exhibit impulsiveness, inattention, or hyperactivity to a degree that isn’t appropriate for their age. If your child has been diagnosed with ADHD, or ADD, he or she can qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits if the severity of the child’s ADHD meets the Social Security Administration’s childhood impairment listing for neurodevelopmental disorders (listing 112.11). This is not an easy thing to do; most children with ADHD are denied SSI benefits. Only those with the most severe problems are approved.
