hi, someone has said I should consider claiming DLA for my 10 yr who has severe anxiety and I suspect he may have autism, I have asked for a referral from the gp for an autism test, but I’m aware I could be looking at over a yr for this to be done, in the meantime I am going down the parent led CBT route with the help from mind mate, anyhow is there someone I could contact that will help filling in the form, other than citizens advice.
