so what does she want more? i think $600,00 a month is enough dont you? maybe the extra 300 more would help him talk more.

thats just crazy! they have speech therapy in school! my son was in it for 3yrs and i never had to have a check to help him start talking better, sounds to me like your aunt just likes any money she don't have to earn, whats gonna happen when he starts talking clearly? a real mom would be working with him instead of trying to use him to her advantage!

Yeah thatís what wrong with the system, too many damn abusers, not enough checkups on the check getters. I can see a free class for the kid but not a SSI check. I mean he is not missing any work for his speech impediment, and I doubt that it cost 600 a month to get him help...he prob only gets therapy at school. Lazy [email protected]@ people.

I think she or anyone getting SSI for a child should not get straight money, it should be a plastic card that has credits on it which canít be used for cigs, beer, alcohol, tattoos, hair dye, stretch pants, Elvis/Lynyrd Skynyrd cds, dollar store perfume/makeup, Dish bills, pornoís, Mountain Dew, meth, weed, confederate flags, fightin' chickens, goats, motorcycles and so on.

Only things HE/the child would need would qualify on the new SSI for children credit system.
Who is for my new SSI system?

Are they actually trying to teach the 7 year old to say "WTF?" Wow! LOL!

Have any of you seen the child's evaluation? Does he have any other physical or developmental delays?

Of course you do not know, you are just jumping to conclusions as usual!

If the child is not in a wheelchair, on dialysis, need a heart transplant, have an IQ of less than 40, or any other EXTREME disability he needs to be taught a skills that he can perform so when he becomes a man he can support himself and not depend on a darn govmt check. It a vicious cycle people have gotten into. Planning their whole lives around a SSI check. Shouldn't we tech these SSI kids skills applicable to them so they can have a productive life?

None of that alone will get you disability.There would have to be other issues as well to qualify for disability.Also if the child is drawing on speech issues there is other medical conditions otherwise the child would not qualify.Sometimes medical issues arent always seen and people really shouldnt just assume based on what they think.

I'm sorry but we all know that if a kid was truly bad off we would have nothing to say about a check. However due to my own experience with people getting checks for their kids...the parents are BENT on getting a SSI check for 18 years, and I have known some people who tell their kids from BIRTH that they are dumb and that it runs in the family, to play dumb at school, and to not even try to learn....all to get a check.

People can learn skills. No not everyone will be a NASA scientist....but the world needs a variety of different skill level workers.$674.00 cash a month for doing nothing is just too tempting. Kids who supposedly have a learning/other simple disability should have a variety of job training opportunities in order to break the SSI cycle.

well know it alls who think ppl cant get ssi for speech u r wrong i know many ppl who get it for speech, learning disabilities and even asthma so maybe u all should be questioning who is handing this money out not just the parents i mean u cant really blame ppl for getting a check it is the american way sad but true

Speech is one of 14 categories of disabilities. Speech is provided, at no cost, to children in the public schools if the parent agrees to it. This child will be provided a chance if this is addressed NOW. The world, and its people, are cruel and this child will have a terrible time if he/she is not prepared to take care of themself someday. This child will not only be depressed and withdrawn, they will become angry at those that did not help them.

my thoughts exactly! if a parent really cares they'll take advantage of the speech therapy in the school system and work with their child themselves, no sense in these children growing up thinking that a monthly check is their only option! they deserve better!
