The Cerebra DLA guide here is very useful for giving an idea of what you should include in each section.

Does your dc have a lead professional or keyworker, who could advise you. It really helps to talk through the questions and how they could apply to your child.

Would second the Cerebra guide and support from a professional involved with ds too. Our paed, GP and Headteacher were all very supportive when we applied. Whoever advised you to apply should be able to help you with the forms IME.

Put in as much detail as you can and always overestimate all the time stuff. When I filled mine in I did it with my local Mencap office (Barnet in N London) and they were brilliantly helpful and we got a bigger award than expected. I would approach your local office and see if they can help. Good luck.
