Why do you have to wait for the letter? They can tell you over the phone - although it seems to depend on the operator whether they'll give information out or not. Could try phoning again to see if you get a different person?

Have no idea if a fast response is good or bad though. It could be either way from what I've heard.

Got our decision for ds's first adult award he's 16 tomorrow, and he's on the same rate high rate care and low mobility until 2013 they received it on the 28th of June and made the decision on the 11th of July.I didn't expect him to get this as I've seen on here that a lot of awards have been dropped right down.

I would give them a ring to let them know - I haven't had to renew yet but a friend of mine thought it was an automatic renewal and was contacted to complete a new form.

Personally, I would ask for the mobility to be reconsidered. If your ds needs support and supervision when he's out and about, additional to what his peers need, then he's entitled to mobility.
I can appreciate that all the extra hassle is a total PITA though! DD's renewal is due soon and I'm ridiculously stressed about it!
Good luck x

I know what you mean -it's kind of a calculated risk, isn't it?

Yeah, but there are set criteria. They're not allowed to just make it up, so if they did change it, you would appeal.

I say this as someone who knows that they DO make it up and so had to appeal!

High rate care = care needs all day and at night

Low rate mobility = needs extra supervision out and about.

Would have thought that there's no question that you wouldn't need mobility or qualify for it and I would think it's also wuite unusual for a HRC person not to qualify for mobility too!

I think it might be worth asking for a review. I understand you can ask for that without having to lodge an appeal. You still keep your right to appeal.

It does seem odd that an autistic child who meets the criteria for HRC wouldn't qualify also for mobility.

I don't think you have anything to lose with a review but you could check the cerebra guide.

I thought you can only get HR mobility if they are below 5.

debs40 Sun 18-Jul-10 19:03:18

Sorry, what I mean is that I don't think you could apply TG any way.

On what LD is saying and the nature of care that has established HRC for her child, I can't see why she shouldn't ask for a review.
