    Hi @happy55Bunny

    You don’t have to do the form on your own. You can ask someone else to help you. They can help by keeping you company while you do it, talking to you about your answers before you write them or they can fill in the form for you. It can be someone you know or you can find a benefits adviser near you using our the Turn2Us Find an Adviser tool

    There is lots more information on the Turn2Us website about filling in PIP forms.

    Could a friend or family member help you by sitting with you and reading through the questions and helping you write the answers?

    Most people do find the form tough to fill in, it is worth taking your time and not doing it all in one sitting.  You need to get as much evidence as possible so it is worth speaking to any doctors/therapists/nurses/consultants who you see about your impairment.

    There is plenty of help out there but considerable merit in doing the form yourself as it neatly illustrates your issues. Get someone to explain the questions but you write the answers. Dyslexia rarely prevents you reading or writing but in most cases it makes it harder. Show them the result.

    A quick call to PIP will also get you a minimum 2 week extension of time.
