my sons who has autism turned 16 and we had to apply for pip from dla. We have been declined pip and I am having trouble understanding the jargon on the assessors report. They refer to his MSE and MSO. Does anyone know what they refer to. Also assessors did tests like count down in sevens and remember 3 things. He was able to do the sevens but not the 3 things. What do each test show? The biggest thing I am really annoyed about is the assessor report has flying colours for his appearence, well kept, well fed and did not look anxious but do not take into account that at the time of assessment he was receiving full time care as awarded dla. If he didn't have care the report would of been different. Would he received pip if 3 weeks prior leading to assessment I stopped all care . Is this care being received at time been taken into account.
