    Hi @ladykholoud
    Welcome to the community, PIP is around how the impairment affects day to day life.  There is a PIP self test you can fill in here.

    Hi I'm also wondering could I get help on reviving help for my daughter whom is dyslexia I have battled for years even to get her diagnosed its a long story but let's say I was pushed from education board to doctors. Etc the child lost out on a lot of school years and now is 13 and revives help from class room assistants n took from class for help.. I gave up on the past as I was pushed from person  To person but would like to know could I receive help for her... She deserves it after all these years to get the help I'm at a lose end being a single parent with child also with type 1 diabetic. And could I get the help for my eldest many thnks for any information

    Hi @Allycrazyhorse, the online benefits calculator could be a good place to start in terms of seeing what you're entitled to!
