Childhood SSI and the Domain of Caring for Yourself

     Parents applying for childhood SSI benefits are often confused by how the Social Security Administration evaluates the claim. The SSA looks at the child's functioning in terms of six domains. This entry deals with Caring for Yourself and is the fifth in a series discussing domains of function. In this domain, SSA considers how well someone maintains a healthy emotional and physical state, including how well she gets her physical and emotional wants and needs to be met in appropriate ways; coping with stress and changes in the environment; and whether she takes care of her own health, possessions, and living area.
