Hello! I’d love to hear success stories of DLA

I am a single parent of a 10 year old child with Autism, ADHD & PDA.. I work 40 hours plus freelance design work in the evenings and we certainly both have had a hard time this year getting to grips with family loss and understanding my sons needs as he gets older. 

I’m currently (very slowly) trying to fill out DLA form and it’s not the most uplifting experience…. I’d love to hear a success story or two on how people benefitted from receiving the DLA or what they could put the money towards to help me power through…
