My daughter has Speech & Language Delay, and also Social, communication, interaction delay. Its quite significant.

AIBU to apply for DLA?
The form asks for nursery contact details, will they think I'm being OTT?
Is DLA needed for SEN funding?
Has anyone been awarded DLA for speech delay issues?
Dazed and confused by the whole process, aibu to even apply?

OP post this again in

this section above.

The people there will be more informed and helpful than anyone here.

Dla is awarded to parents of children where the child needs a higher level of care than an typically developing child of the same age. It’s a fickle and tricky application process but once awarded it can open doors to further possible help.
