Just wanted to let you all know we received a letter from SSA and my PDr has been given a fully favorable decision on his disability.
I contacted the paralegal in regards to some questions i had and she commented to me that i should be a lobbyist.... Without my constant letter campaign and the links, websites and info on the WAIS-IV test, this result could have been 2 years in the making.

I want to thank of all you who replied and whose posts i sent to SSA (minus your name). It seems that his review was sent to the main legal office in MS. The paralegal told me that it was referred there because they thought we might take legal action against the officer and the tester, who had him take the WAIS-IV test. It turns out that this test will not be used in the future when determining the abilities of those who have PD, short term memory loss and slight or mild dementia. This doctor that gave the test just may be out of work with the determination process since they agreed that the former test was prejudiced in its comments. In otherwords, he profiled him.

That just proves that YES!!!! we can fight city hall.....

Thank You all again for your comments and information in that post.

If we can just fight for the future of the PD patient then all our hard work and caregiving is well worth the fight........
