Hi everyone. Received a copy of my assessment report. Scored 11 points on the daily living. Need advice though. I sent 5 reports to to dwp from a physcotherapist, I've noticed on my assessment the independent assessment team that all the evidence considered is just my pip questionnaire. I dont want to go into all the details of my mental health, I will say it starts with anxiety then escalates to ptsd. The assessor in her report, a nurse, accepts I have I have put myself in danger by running across a dual carriageway through a panic attack but says I'm able to plan/ follow a journey without any support. She also accepts I need help dressing because I can't fasten buttons, laces etc due to a physical disability but yet I only received 2 points. If she says my friend ties my laces and fastens buttons does this not come under unable to dress with supervision/support. Because of my physical disability I need help getting down the stairs to use the toilet or bath. My friend takes me down as any movement in my neck cause me to have dizzy spells. I recieved 2 points under aid or appliance. I'm thinking of putting in a mandatory reconsideration in. Is it advisable?
