NADE Newsletter

The National Association of Disability Examiners (NADE), an organization of the personnel who make initial and reconsideration determinations on disability claims for the Social Security Administration, has released its Fall 2011 newsletter.
     The newsletter included the "Grading Daily Activities and Social Skills" table seen  above. This was handed out by Dr. Robert Brooks of California Disability Determination Services at a NADE event. I do not believe I have seen this before. Does this have even semi-official status?

just seems like common sense...but not "official"

If this becomes "official" pretty much everybody is going to be found disabled. The "news" about the "criteria" will fly around the country over night and reps will prep the clts quickly what to report to the agency, their drs and counselors, and particularly to CExaminers who see them once and have no idea whether their reports of ADLs and SF have any bases in facts. Ridiculous.
