I am again looking for ideas. I too have an autistic child who 10 years old she also has adhd,low muscle tone and anxiety. She was just been approved for SSI. She is going to receive back pay and I have to put it into the dedicated account. OK that that is great it's hers OK but they say I can use it only for nursing care, school, .personal needs (not food,clothes,or utilities or therapy or rehabilitation assistance , OK well she is 10 and autism camp is great idea! she doesn't need nurses or wheelchairs etc. so how can I use this money to benefit her?? Any ideas? I wish I could use it to get her school clothes and things. And I too need my car fixed but have no idea what I can and cannot do. The list is not very clear and social security is not helpful.
Anyone know how to use this money? She does has violent fits and destroyed furniture can this be used for this? Please tell me how to use this?How did others use it? Help!!This is not ssdi or adult ssi.:confused:
