my two sons have high functioning Autism , they rely on me completely to help them do household chores to assisting when cooking and chopping veg etc , also to encourage washing and dressing and going out in the community to do some shopping and recreational activities they have never caught a bus on their own and wouldn't know the area they live in the have terrible anxiety whenever they go out any where and need reassurance and my car ready for a quick exit if needed ,they can't manage money, they don't know the difference between £5 and £20 etc, I have to help them to budget and save , my oldest son had his PIP interview in December and was refused PIP ! As apparently he could take his cap off ok and he plays on the Xbox games (not very good) ! They said as he could do these things he doesn't not qualify for PIP ! 
Has anyone else had the same problem claiming ? We are appealing but now have to go to court which I'm dreading as I know my son will be a bag of nerves on the day and I'm hoping he won't lash out and hit someone when we are there .
