Is SSI I receive for my disabled son counted as income

No, it is not income to you. Supplemental security Income (SSI) is not income to him either, it is considered welfare.

However, if by SSI, you means social security income; read on.

Social security payments to children.

 If the Social Security (SS) payments. Including SS disability, were under his/her SS number (as they usually are), it does not get reported on your return. If it does need to be reported, it would go on his/her individual return. If that was his/her only income, it does not get reported at all. She does not need to file a tax return. 

SS is only taxable & reportable when added to sufficient other income. Social security only  becomes taxable, when his income, including 1/2 his social security, reaches $25,000
