Using emails for DLA evidence
My son’s occupational therapist contacted me by email a lot and some of what they said would be very good evidence for my son’s claim. Am I allowed to use the contents of an email? Do I quote or just print and send it? I can’t ask the ot as they retired last month and still waiting to be assigned a new one. I have ot reports but the emails have like actual observed examples of things and also explain why therapy won’t work (which would help explain why we don’t have many professionals involved)
