Listing of Impairments – Childhood Listings (Part B)

While the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Adult Listing of Impairments details the medical criteria used by the SSA in evaluating whether a condition is severe enough to preclude a person’s ability to work or perform substantially gainful activity, the SSA’s Childhood Listings focus only on evaluating impairments in children under the age of 18, especially where the criteria set forth in the SSA’s Adult Listings are insufficient in allowing full consideration of specific disease processes that occur in childhood. If your child has a severe physical or mental condition that negatively impacts their well being, please contact Viner Disability Law to speak with one of our attorneys about whether your child may be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
