I'm niki99. My daughter has a processing disorder. Where can she get help with daily living?
My daughter has some sort of processing disorder. In a range of tests she performed at best 3 years behind her chronological age and in some cases 5 years plus. Carried out by clinical psychologist about 5 years ago. She was always supported with normal classroom differentiation so no official diagnosis or disability registered. She is now 20 and really struggling with life. For example has ignored all contact with universal credit people for over 6 months as not in work as its just all too much for her. Does anybody have experience of registering a now adult with a chaperone, advocate or where I can go for help.we need something on her records that shows she needs support with adult activities
