The best thing is , is to hire a lawyer that specialized in getting SSD, and be prepared for rejection after rejection, but just wait it thru, if you have a good case it will be approved, usually by a judge at a hearing, but it will happen and usually it will be back dated to the first time you applied. But it can take years, it did me, and they gave the same reason, I was too young! I was told by my Lawyer that they (SSD) just hopes to wear you down and you will give up! They had a thing about it on TV a few years back 60 minutes or something like that, I can't remember exactly what show, and there was a person that was formally high up in SS and she said it was standard policy to reject people on the first and second application, and even the third time around.
