Well, the biggest thing I would change to make things better is PEOPLE and their prejudices but
that ain't gonna happen. The most ridiculous thing a came across when dealing with the govt was
when we applied for our sons SSI, and it came time for a review and I asked why and they said to
see if his conditioned changed. It was all I could do not rale.......No (I said very sweetly DS
doesn't just go away) and they said well we must check because you never know. ACKK!!
Sorry, I have little faith in advocacy has not worked well for us. Good Luck! as they say.
