Child ADHD won the Liebster Award!!

I don't know if I mentioned, but back in June I received a post from one of my followers, Dr. Momsie. She had given Child ADHD Info her Liebster Blog Award and it was a great honor! She also included a link to the page where she wrote a little about the 5 blogs she gave the award to. She had actually looked into me pretty well and here is what she had to say about me and Child ADHD Info:

"Next awesome blog, Child ADHD Info- Raising a Child with ADHD. As a psychologist, I can't resist sharing this blog. The author, Stacy, is a mother of a child with ADHD and has worked in psychology, and she has definitely done her research. If you have a child with ADHD or are concerned your child might have ADHD, you've got to check out this blog!"

This review was a very proud moment for Child ADHD and myself, especially coming from a psychologist!! So, I wanted to take this time to again thank Dr. Momsie for this wonderful review and award! Feel free to check out her wonderful blog here.

Social Security Benefits For ADHD Children

Many disabled Americans receive Social Security benefits or SSI. All types of different disabilities both mental and physical can qualify for these benefits, as long as the meet the Social Security Administrations (SSA) guidelines for receiving them. These benefits include income of up to $500/monthly as well as possible medicaid. Someone told me that you can receive these benefits for a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). So, I started to wonder if this was true, looked into it and found some interesting information...

After looking into different articles as well as SSA policies and guidelines, I found that it is indeed possible to be eligible for and receive Social Security benefits for your ADHD child. Is it easy to get these benefits? No not really though its used to be much easier.
