Autism is neurodevelopmental disorder which affects a person's social interaction and communication skills. There are three types of autistic disorders: Autism, Asperger Syndrome and Pervasive Developmental Disorder. All types of disorders are present from birth, and generally they are recognized by age 3.

Medical diagnosis of an autistic disorder requires a finding that the sufferer exhibits of impaired social interaction, communication impairments and signs of restricted or repetitive behavior.

Autism is recognized by the Social Security Administration as a disabling condition if the legal requirements are met or equaled. The listed requirements for a child suffering from autistism are as follows:

First, you need medical documentation of a finding of autism, along with medical documentation of: (i) qualitative deficits in the development of reciprocal social interaction; and (ii) qualitative deficits in verbal and nonverbal communication and in imaginative activity; and (iii) markedly restricted repertoire of activities and interests.

For someone suffering from pervasive developmental disorders, there must also be medical documentation of such a diagnosis, along with documentation of (i) qualitative deficits in development of reciprocal social interaction and (ii) qualitative deficits in verbal and nonverbal communication and in imaginative activity.

In addition to these findings, you must also satisfy the age-based criteria set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations.

If you live in Sylacauga, Lincoln, or anywhere in Talladega County, Alabama, and you suffer with autism, you don't have to deal with Social Security alone.  Contact the experienced Alabama Social Security Disability Attorneys at Powell and Denny
