Son with Severe ADHD and LD denied DTC how to appeal?

by Jennifer

My son has very severe ADHD with a few LD with it.

He is in special education and requires medication. I need to know what I am doing wrong on my form and what the Dr. did wrong. He has never filled out the form before as he is just my family Dr.

I attached his assessment from the psychologist a personal letting from me and his special education placement forms.

I know I do not need to describe to any of you who have children with this disability of what it takes day to day in dealing with our ADHD child/ren.

But I feel we have been denied unfairly and I need to figure out why. The denial says they do not believe he is markedly restricted 90% of the time which is a joke.

And they contacted my Dr. which I think may have been our down fall. Anyone know what is the correct wording to use?

I mean I cant even work a normal job because I have to be with my little man for picking up and dropping off at school etc. :(

Even though he is 11 he just is not ready to be on his own or with sitters just yet if ever :( Help!
