    I wonder if meeting with a specialty attorney could help your family build a hardship case around your son's needs. The earlier your husband presents this case, the more options he may be offered. It may be worth a shot.

    I am not sure the military would care about a civilian lawyer. However, we are doing building our own case.

    The lawyer isn't to impress anyone, it's to advise you on all possible elements and avenues to present that you may not be aware of.

    Friends who have children with special needs and need services at their local public school often hire an attorney with this sort of thing plus sometimes to attend meetings concerning their rights.

    The thing is the military does not care. Go where you are told or get out . You signed on the dotted line they own you . They try IF they can to take your needs into consideration but ultimately itís where the military needs you. My son is also an adult they donít even move him . We have to pay to move him . Because heís not covered by federal disability we have to move him ourselves because he is no longer considered a dependent . He is not even covered by my husbandĎs insurance anymore . All his medical needs are paid for by the Ontario disability program . So according to the military he is considered an adult and no longer their problem .

    Just an aside, I think it's so wrong that the Feds don't recognize your son as having a disability . Meanwhile, able people who are pure lazy are receiving disability benefits. It's just sick.

    It also infuriates me that it is not distributed equitably . Iíve seen people far less disabled than my son get the federal pension and the ability to save for their retirement through RDSP and my son canít not.

    Or people collecting welfare like my stepsister who has only ever worked six months in her life totally and completely able-bodied but yet just has more and more kids as her retirement plan so that she can get over $30,000 a year or more in childcare payments and not have to do a thing . And she gives half the kids their fatherís name and half her kids her name and states that her whatever boyfriend at the time doesnít live there so that she can get the full benefit of whatever from wherever . And yet she can have a whole baseball team more of the kids ( paid for by the government)and then I get to knock myself out helping my one child . Not that I blame her children because they canít be held accountable for their mother but it burns my biscuit.

    All I want is for my son to be treated equitably by the government .

    I'm totally with you on all of that. I can only imagine how frustrating it is.
