I'm starting to gather information to fill in a DLA form for DS who has ASD. Some of his needs 'come and go', for example, he has had a period where he destroyed our sofa by pulling at a hole in the fabric, bit by bit. He then stopped it for a few weeks but started again- and very often the pattern is like this with many of his behaviours. It's really hard to say his needs take us x time per day/week because it seems very cyclical. Is it ok to include activities which don't happen as regulary as every week?

Yes, absolutely, fill out the form with your worst day in mind. It is an awful thing to do, I found it massively stressful. Have you got the Cerebra guide, it is brilliant and you shouldn't fill out the form without it!
