Is there anywhere that can advise about a DLA application?
Are there any charities or organisations that anyone could recommend who could advise about a DLA application for ds. Ideally I need someone who I can talk to about his issues, who could say whether I should apply, and what to include if I do?
I was going to suggest the cerebra dla guide too. And contact a family (the charity) are very good - both their website and helplines. Generally you are far better to do the forms yourself - they read better if they’re done by someone who personally knows the child.
Hi, I've recently claimed DLA for ds and used the cerebra guide. I had to ask for a mandatory reconsideration as it was turned down at first - what swung it was getting a statement from the SENCO at school so if your child is school or preschool age then I'd recommend doing that, if possible.
