HELP PLEASE PIP TRIBUNAL ADJOURNED
Help please ! PIP tribunal Appeal adjourned
Hi Im my sons appointee for PIP, I will try and make it as short as I can, my son has global learning difficulties, dyslexia, short term memory,SPLD, he recived DLA since 2010, then onto PIP, in2015 he was reasses by forms and also a home visot to apooint me as his appointee, they also telephoned his scholl he had just left to speak to the SENCO, he was award PIP.... in Dec 2017 we recieved forms to fill asking if anything had changed... we then had to attended a face to face assesemnt.... he scored 0 points most of the what the assesor put was lies lies lies! I appealed... we had an appointment for the tribunal.... now the stress of the last face to face assesment for my son before during and after was terrible....
so I wrote a letter to the tribunal asking permission that he did not attend, I didnt receive a response so I telephoned as was told My son does not need to attend because I am his appointee, the letter also asked do we have any further evidence.... well in the assessors report she put my son had no additional support in college.... so i telephoned the college and asked if there was any evidence i could use, so they sent me from 2016-2019 all of his learning support assesments (35 pages) which clearly says sam have support and his difficulties ( which contradicts what the assesor says) .... so myself and my sons dad attended the tribunal yesturdday 7/06/2019 we walked in sat down and was told it would have to be adjourned as they could not go ahead without seeing and questioning my son, and seeking further reports from college.... We came away just deflated... for one I was told he did bot need to attend, so now I have the stress of my son having to attend, all the waiting, I have no idea what happens next or how long it will take, I feel like giving up, is there any chance that DWP could change their decision having recived that additional eveidence ?
Thank you for any help advise
