I have heard that children with Asperger's Syndrome could be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI)? My son is almost 6, just diagnosed and I'm a little overwhelmed at organizing his care, as well as affording it. Advice?

My son is almost 6, just diagnosed and I'm a little overwhelmed at organizing his care, as well as affording it - Occupational Therapy, Psychotherapy and Medical Management, and then of course, there is the school IEP process. A local support group leader indicated that children with Asperger's might be eligible for SSI? Does anyone know h(1) if this is correct, and if yes, (2) how do I go about applying?



Thanks!
