It sounds so... when my son was awarded DLA at 3.5 it was for 5 years.

Our award came through for ds1 who is ASD. He's been given low rate care and low rate mobility, which I am happy with. However his letter has come through with the dates 19/12/12 to 3/2/2023 (he's 6.5). Does this mean we are not expected to renew until he is sixteen? I know they can review in this time, but is his award for his whole childhood?
