DLA claim - 4 year old with CP.
I have tried to apply for DLA for my 4 year old who has cerebral palsy, it has been declined, I have appealed the decision, and have been waiting for a date for the tribunal. I’ve finally got the date and it’s coming up very soon.
What should I expect? What kind of evidence could really help that I could of forgotten?
I did have an appointment with a welfare rights officer, and she looked at the claim form and she said she wouldn’t of filled it out any better as I did it very detailed, and gave evidence.
The main reason the claim got declined was because my little girl doesn’t wake through the night? 🤔 but she was prescribed baclofen for leg spasms, and only doesn’t wake in the night because of the medication. She still wakes, just not “enough” they say.
