Autistic son turned down PIP
Hello all I am so angry and confused my 23 year old Autistic son who also has ADHD, ODD has just been turned down PIP with 0 points. He has had DLA since the age of 7, he has always had extreme behaviours from the age of 2 1/2 began getting worse when he was in nursery when he cracked another child's head ope, cut a girls pony tail off, stabbed another with a pencil I could go on, things got worse when he went up, he even began self harming, teacher had to evacuate class rooms to keep other children safe, we had to take him to school 5 minutes after other children had already got settled within 20 minutes had a phone call to pick him up as he was badly aggressive it used to take 5 of use to restrain him to get him to the car this went on for about 3 years of him only spending 20 minutes at school even with a 1 to 1 teacher by the time he was 10 I pulled him out of school to fight to get him into a special school which took a further 2 years.once at a autistic school he changed become calmer with less outbursts he even passed all his exams when he was tested for autism at the age of 7 he had a visual IQ of 140 very clever, then he turned 16 time to leave, we inrolled him into a collage and he had 6 weeks of travel training before starting he managed to do about 3 months when I received a call from his teacher saying she advised me to get my son to leave the collage before they kick him out as he would not be able to go to another collage if kicked out. Since the age of 16 1/2 my son stays in his room comes down for food and to use the bathroom and that's it he never leaves the house he said it's to scary and makes him feel nervous. Yet they have stopped all his money expecting him to leave the house and sign on or get a job what can I do.
