What now? Advice please.
I've just received the bundle from the DWP about my daughter's appeal (she has a chromosomal abnormality/learning difficulty). I am so exhausted by this. I had sent in extra evidence from her speech therapist, tutor, LSA, friends and family. It took me ages to gather together evidence, and write my letter for the appeal. Nevertheless, they seem to veto everything in favour of their own Assessment. The Assessor met her for about 50 minutes though! I am so shocked and angry that I have to fight so hard for a young girl with a learning difficulty! I will definitely take this all the way to the Tribunal, but what I want to know now is...what do I do in the meantime? Do I have to respond to the Bundle? Or do I just wait for a court date? Thanks for any advice
