Given almost no points
I have recently received my PIP letter and I have been given practically nothing (2 points). The assessor seemed to brush off quite a lot, he couldn't get an answer from me quick enough, almost trying to get me to say what he wanted to hear. I have ASD, anxiety and mild cerebral palsy. I cannot walk too far without a burning pain in my shins, make eye contact or manage sensory input. He said I walked fine, moved fine and showed no anxiety talking to him - even though I completed movements with support from sitting down - hardly looking at him, he only saw me walking the minute or so distance to and from the waiting area to the assessment room (my balance/ability to walk is only what it is because I wore splints and received physiotherapy for around 10 years as a child, even now I don't walk properly and still have to wear insoles to try and hold my feet straight - which he didn't seem to care less about as it hadn't happened recently) and I fidgeted with my stim toy the entire time. My aunt who was with me has wrote down what she thinks and has suggested I take it to citizens advice. How do I get a better understanding from the PIP people and sort this out? Thanks
