The fact that I am so frustrated and dont know where to begin . . I live in Arkansas ( my hometown ) just moved back here in October .I have two baby boys the ages of 1 and 3 . my 3 year old was diagnosed with seizures at 9 months . as he got a little older I started noticing a lot of things other kids could/would do but he didn't know how to do just yet . he was way behind on his walking , he only no 2 words anyways moved to Georgia and begin seeing neurologist and speech therapist come to find out he has a learning disability . he is not potty trained still in diapers . I now live in Arkansas and has already applied for ssi in December 1 , 2014 has yet to hear anything . he doesn't have medicaid its been 90 days already . I been dealing with this for 3 years nobody is trying to help at all . he takes medicine for his seizures but the meds or so high I can't afford them again he has no medicaid . I'm trying to keep my faith but its getting harder and harder . I would love for my child to be in school learning doing things kids his age are able to do but the fact that every state I move to can't help me is frustrating . if someone can pls , pls , pls ,pls , pls help me give me some answer anything , I just really need someone to talk to cause I'm about to lose it . I'm trying to be string for my babies but its getting hard now . someone anyone pls

I've spoke with schools here they say he would need to see a doctor and the doctor would have to send a referral to them and they would have evaluate him to see if he qualify . I call the dhs office everyday checking the statues just to be on hold for 30 mins and say medicade is still pending . I have medical history paperwork etc that my son is autistic and has seizures . I can careless about ssi I'm really focused in the medicaid BC he hasn't seen a doctor since I've been here . you would think with a sick child they would move a little bit faster
