    In short no, you have to meet the ESA descriptors as to know which group you will be placed into.

    Hi,

    Wilko is correct, being placed into one of the groups is not about a diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect you.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    To be placed into the Support Group through mobilising (mobility) then they'll take into consideration your ability to use a self propel wheelchair, if they think you can do this then you won't be placed into this group through this descriptor.
