I thought it was on any but you got a higher rate for severely disabled (High rate DLA).

probably just confused you completely now jammie.

cheers sagga.

looking on the website isn't very clear either hun.

I took it to be any amount but am very new to this so thought I would ask you experienced peeps.

Disability Alliance website says you can get-

a disabled child element - for each child within the family on disability living allowance (DLA) or who is registered blind;

and

a severely disabled child element - for each child within the family on the higher rate care component of DLA.


Carers allowance is just middle and high.

It would appear that there is a rate for lower and middle rate care then a higher rate if your child receives higher rate care,this is known as a severe disability premium!
