    I can't find any guides for filling out the ADP form, maybe it's because it's still quite a new benefit.

    You just need to make sure you include as much information as possible, without telling your life story. Also include a couple of recent real world examples of exactly what happened the last time you attempted each descriptor that applies to you.

    Adding detailed information such as where you were, what exactly happened, did anyone see it and what the consequences were.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
