SN: SSI? Japan 388 posts

Right now he has autism, language processing disorder, and deletion of chromosome 15q.



He's more than likely about to be diagnosed with sensory processing disorder though.



Does anyone know if he would qualify for SSI with the diagnoses he currently has?

SSI depends on income also, but yes. My daughter was diagnosed with autism in December of last year and we started getting SSI in February.

It really depends on your situation. Some people will and some won't. And often you get denied the first round and need to appeal.
