Autism Spectrum Disorder

Living with rare conditions and illnesses poses a double challenge: The medical condition itself is a disability that makes life and work more challenging, but because the condition is not well-known and perhaps not easily visible, it can be difficult to obtain the appropriate accommodations or even basic sympathy when symptoms are holding you back. Stephen Jackel has an excellent track record in helping children and adults with autism spectrum disorder obtain disability benefits.

At the Law Office of Stephen M. Jackel, you will work with an experienced attorney who understands the details of your condition and your life. Stephen Jackel is committed to helping you obtain the benefits you deserve to manage your disability, no matter how big or small.

Social Security Legal Support From An Experienced Disability Lawyer

The Law Office of Stephen M. Jackel works with a wide range of medical conditions, including:

POTS syndrome: Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, also known as POTS, is a medical condition that causes a jump in your heart rate when you move from a lying or sitting position to a standing position. Symptoms include lightheadedness, blurry vision, weakness and difficulty thinking clearly. Obviously this can interfere with all kinds of work and many of the tasks of daily life.

Autism: This is a neurodevelopmental disorder that typically leads to impaired communication abilities, repetitive behavior and impaired social interaction. Autism comes in many forms, and many people with autism live independently and are gainfully employed, but it is a hindrance and in many cases, it constitutes a serious disability.

Ulcerative colitis, microscopic colitis and Crohn's disease: These are inflammatory bowel diseases and, unfortunately, the cause of these conditions is not well-understood. Each of these diseases can be quite painful, with symptoms such as abdominal pain and diarrhea mixed with blood. Because these conditions can require frequent and sudden trips to the bathroom, or even a doctor, it can be hard to get through the tasks and errands of daily life.
