Can I claim DLA for my daughter?
Hi.. Just a puzzling question. I am a carer for my daughter whom is type 1 diabetic I also have a daughter of 13 whom I've had a lot of trouble threw out primary school, knowing she was struggling etc I went to doctors to education boards to be told that I go to doctor then doctor tell me education board she finally got a assement threw rhthe school and has all traits af austuim but when they finally found out for me that she was dyslexia they told me that as she has been diagnosed with dyslexia that she cannot be assessed again.. So I gave up and finally after 5yrs of knowing my child was struggling at school she got extra help at school with her dyslexia n now she has moved on to high school n is still receiving help at school does anyone know can I claim dla for her as she still can't tell time etc etc signs n if i was to give it ago where do I find out the evidence to prove she was assessed and is dyslexica tbh.. I gave up with getting her assessed with the austuim n if she was to be really put on the spot for me to get help with extras for my daughter as I am a single parent.. Are r kids entitled to dla for dyslexica.. Many help would be useful n appreciate
