Request a New assessment
HI my name is Alan, Ahmed is actually my Son, Ahmed is Autistic and goes to one of the National Autistic Schools. Ahmed is 18 he has always received the High Rate of Care but the Low Rate of Mobility, I have always worried about this because I believe he has been wrongly assessed Ahmed Still receives DLA and not PiP, However as Ahmed has never been able to get around by himself specially in public places should I appeal and ask for the High rate of Mobility for him, As he is unable to manage his own Affairs I have to do almost everything for him, Believe me when I say that Ahmed under no circumstances can go out by himself or even cross a Road by himself without being a serious danger to himself and other, It is very difficult even when I am with him he is just not aware of Danger, What worries me is the assessment he would not even have a clue why he would be at an assessment. Should I apply. its not about the Money although we could do with as much help as we can get, The cost of supporting a Child with autism today is enormous. it is about what he is entitled to.
