Social Security receives SSI disability applications for many children with autism, Asperger's Syndrome, and other pervasive developmental disorders, in addition to ADHD and borderline intellectual functioning and other developmental disorders. In addition, many parents of children with learning disabilities like dyslexia apply for SSI in the hopes of getting disability benefits. Social Security does have specific disability listings that list the criteria needed for most developmental disorders to qualify for disability benefits, but it does not specifically recognize having learning disabilities as a disabling medical condition.
