In the last year finally diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder(high Functioning) and Severe anxiety. child is 5- attended pre-k where he had a 'modified day' only went a portion of the time of the others and now goes to a special outdoor school due to his struggles. We applied for SSI 3/2012 and were approved in 4/2012, 3 weeks ago we were asked to go to a medical eval. by a psychologist and i just gt a letter in the mail from ssi stating that hes not 'disabled under our rules' 'although (childs name) has been diagnosed with ASD, hes shown normal milestones. Also hes been diagnosed with Aspergers Disorder. He is imprving with prescribed treatment and Dr. Applebaum (whom is his general physician and met him only twice ever keep in mind) indicates he does well with peers..how do i appeal??Basically, I strongly disagree with this decision, ive never been or have ever even known anyone whos received SSI or even been disabled for that matter- i need to be with my son constantly due to his Autistic Struggles leaving our annual income at less than 25,000 yr. Please help! i dont even know what to include in an Appeal letter or documents to fill out if there are any? all i know is that i have 60 days to figure it out and complete it- the letters dated 8/21/12 which i received today-8/24/12, any pertinent information would be deeply appreciated, thank you.
