Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) July 23, 2014
Andrew W. Norfleet, Esquire, a partner with the Law Firm of Norfleet and Lafferty, LLC, has been selected from a national submission process to present a seminar on Social Security disability benefits for adults and children diagnosed on the Autistic Spectrum. The seminar will take place on July 24, 2014 at the Autism Society National Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana.
“I am honored that I was selected as a presenter at the Autism Society National Conference. Given the lengthy and confusing application process for Social Security disability benefits, as well as the high rate of denials of initial applications and subsequent wait for an appeal hearing, it is vital that individuals diagnosed on the Autistic Spectrum – as well as their family members, medical providers and service providers – understand the application and appeals process and are prepared to give themselves the best opportunity to be approved for benefits” said Mr. Norfleet.
The seminar will examine the process of applying for Social Security disability benefits, including the process used by the Social Security Administration to exam and make a determination on an application for benefits. The seminar will also discuss how medical professionals and service providers can assist their patients with the initial application and, if necessary, the appeal process for adults and children on the Autistic Spectrum.
Individuals diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum, as well as their family members, medical professionals and service providers interested in learning more about the process of applying for Social Security disability benefits should contact Mr. Norfleet at (717) 737-7574 for additional information.
