Preparing for DLA appeal.
I have now received the pack from the DWP for the appeal it basically says my son ’prefers’ to have someone with him outdoors so does not not need supervision. Such a lie how can they speak for a child who has no input? I’m confused because all the evidence they have says he is unaware of danger, has delayed development etc. The reason stated for the award last year was because he was a danger to himself whilst outdoors. I am hoping the GP can help me. Diagnosis of 8 conditions and no recent specific help that is required. 12 doses of meds a day that he cannot do by himself, apparently takes a couple of minutes. I have been shown some really useful information so will persevere. He has rare conditions so not even sure how to deal with the appeal without really detailed explanations of his care needs without professional input. Diagnosis and development tests are not recent. Will take 12 months to be seen again by specialists. Will give it my all for my amazing son who suffers daily and keeps smiling. I am focusing on why he needs help, how often and I am looking at what the law says. Thanks for advice so far.
