Re: Question about SSI approval?
I went threw the same thing with my son when he was 2 years old. He also has a severe speach delay and I applied for the childrens disability program. With in three weeks after applying I was sent an award letter for SSI and I was informed he would be recieving Medicaid . They didnt send me to there doctor though. I just sent his medical records from his primary care doctor, HIS IEP testing info, and all his documentation from his speach therapist. I think she will be approved the first time. Just make sure you provide the proper documents. It seems to me that they feel there is something wrong but, you may have not given them enough medical documentation so they sent you to there doctor to verify her condition and get a second opinion. They usually deny adults the first time not children unless they feel there really isnt a disability. I think everything will be fine and she will be approved! Keep me posted on the outcome and good luck!!
