My daughter is 11 yrs old. She was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes ten months ago. She uses an insulin pump and insulin pens daily, 24 hrs a day. She will have type1 diabetes for the rest of her life. She has to check her blood sugar at least four times a day to continue using the pump, but, she is forced to check it twice as much. Her school has had to hire a registered nurse to keep on staff because of her condition. She is required by her doctor to be on a 504 plan?. Which we had drawn up. Everyone keeps telling me that she qualifies for disability but I'm skeptical. Does she qualify for disability? I just made an apt. with ssa the other day, I haven't had my interview yet. I sure could use any info and or feedback or even any advice with this. Thank you very much.
