    She needs to wait for a decision. Most people have assessments, which are mostly by telephone. Paper based assessments are rare but possible. There are very long delays for review decisions. All she can do is wait. 
    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.
