TOPIC: Success DLA to PIP son has Autism

Success DLA to PIP son has Autism 6 months 6 days ago #223992

Hi,

I have finally got around to posting for the first time here to give a good news story to others. I used the great guidance from this site as well as some other descriptors from specific Autism guides. I was successful in getting awarded enhanced for daily living and mobility for my son. He previously got high care and low mobility for DLA for years. I did spend a long time and stress filling out these horrible forms and sent his school review papers and other information with form. He didn’t need to go for a face to face they made the decision from the paperwork but I don’t know if this is relevant he already gets ESA.

I just wanted to say thanks to this great site and give hope to others, that sometimes the system works and that PIP has been better than DLA for him.

Good luck to others going through this stressful time, it is not through choice we do this but necessity,

Nicky
