Not sure if im in the right place, after some advice or direction really, I have a 19 year old whom has had a full Statement since early years, he is now at college doing a level 1 course, we do not receive any benefits, and our household income is approx £40,000 a year.. Does anyone know if he would be able to claim anything???

Have you checked this?

www.adviceguide.org.uk/wales/benefits_w/benefits_sick_or_disabled_people_and_carers_ew/benefits_for_people_who_are_sick_or_disabled.htm

I also found the people on the benefit advice line vey helpful when I called re ESA.

As he is an adult I would assume that your income should not be counted, but may be wrong. Otherwise does he have a Social Worker or support to advise? Have friends who have claimed DLA for children and if you do fill in the forms you do have to paint a really bleak picture of your child's difficulties which is hard. CAB will help.

Good luck.
