After six years of my child receiving Disability Allowance it has been stopped.
My son has been receiving middle rate care allowance and lower mobility, his conditions have not changed and I have been refused. I sent at least 15 medical letters from several paediatricians, none of which were referred to. I am now at the appeal stage, I am so disgusted at the terms they used in the letter to quote "it is common for boys to need prompting to deal with personal hygiene " my son suffers from a rare bowel condition and this is just rude. It also quoted "dress appropriately" my son suffers from severe dyspraxia and hyper mobility. The final part was "eat healthily" My son has had severe allergies and has been wheat, gluten dairy, egg, soya and fish free. How do I complain? They even had another child's name in the letter so unprofessional and judgemental. I am a single parent and feel like getting a solicitor to get the appeal correct.
