Parenting a child with special needs comes with a unique set of challenges and obstacles. Among these obstacles are the increased expenses that come with specialized medical treatment, supportive care, and assistive devices. While these are often necessary to keep your child comfortable and healthy, they can quickly become very expensive.
If your child has an illness or health condition that prevents him or her from functioning at a typical level, he or she may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. As a parent or guardian, you can use these benefits to ensure that your child has everything they need to thrive and grow.
