Yea @Mummyof3boz your a week ahead of me so hopefully you should hear soon I think they only tell you October to stop us ringing.they told me end of sep at first then when I rang today they said hopefully go to decision maker next week so hopefully yours should be passed to them this week x

Gemconks Mon 13-Sep-21 16:29:29

Thank you @Ems1991 xx

WhatsTheBFD Mon 13-Sep-21 16:41:33

That’s shorter than I thought, I’m half braced for 12 weeks minimum wait!

I was going to post it in July but decided to wait till CAMHS who then sent us to a Paediatrician and we have a diagnosis now of ASD and ADHD, plus significant MH issues which she is having therapy for.

I’ve been unable to work since May as I’m needed around the clock and she can no longer cope with after school childcare.

Ems1991 Mon 13-Sep-21 17:14:58

No problem @gemconks @whatsthebfd after you'd dla form is sent it 8-9 weeks roughly I think most of us are in the same boat when it comes to work in all honesty they do need a lot of care I hope everyone gets the help they need because it's not easy our job and extra money is definitely needed xx

Mummyemx Mon 13-Sep-21 18:46:24

@Ems1991 thank you for the new thread! X

@Sirzy hello, they are doing renewals the week they run out. I sent my sons on the 28th may and it runs out on the 2nd October. I have been waiting nearly 16 weeks!! Called today and they said it hopefully it will be done the week it runs out. When does your child’s run out? X
