Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my question! My five year old has ASD/SID ( Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Sensory Integration Disorder). We have already applied for SSI. We now have an appt. for a Psych exam. Help!! What do I expect? I called to ask about the exam, but was given zilch info. We really need this income. I can no longer work due to the inability to find care!! We are drowning in debt. I have an AWESOME full time job just waiting for me, but right now I can only work two to three days a week, the days my husband is off, and when his parents will watch him, but theyre retired, and tired! My parents wont help unless its an emergency, he is very challenging for most people who watch him. Does anyone have any info? Tips? Stories, success, failure, anything will help. I really appreciate it, Im up to my eyeballs in questions.
Thank you in advance!! Oh also, Im in California, and just barely fall into the qualifying guidelines.
